About me

Wer bin ich?

Geboren als einziger Blondschopf meiner Familie wuchs ich im beschaulichen Städchen Sargans in der Schweiz auf. Hier besuchte ich die Schule und im nahen Fürstentum Lichtenstein machte ich eine Lehre als Physiklaborant. Immer mehr begann ich mich jedoch für Visuelles und Journalistisches zu interessieren. Darum legte ich schon bald meinen ursprünglichen Beruf an den Nagel und absolvierte nach einem Praktikum bei RingierTV das Bachelor-Studium «Multimedia Production» an der HTW Chur. In meiner Vertiefung «TV-Production» lernte ich, wie mit Bewegtbildern und Ton Geschichten erzählt werden können. Besonders die dokumentarische Machart faszinierte mich dabei. Darum entstand zusammen mit einer Kommilitonin im letzten Semester die Reportage «Sherpa Style».

Who am I?

Born as the only blond in my family, I grew up in the quiet village Sargans in Switzerland. Here I attended school and in near principal Lichtenstein I did an apprenticeship as phisics laboratory assistant. But over time I began to be more interested in visual and journalism. Therefore I quit my original job and started to study multimedia production at the HTW Chur after an internship at RingierTV. In my major class TV-production I learned to tell stories with moving images and sound. In particular I was fascinated in the documentary way. That is why I created together with a fellow student a documentary called «Sherpa Style».
