Experience producing and directing both scripted and unscripted work in the US, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Works well under pressure and in challenging environments. Is as comfortable hobnobbing with the rich and famous at a Viennese ball as with living and working among orphans in post war Angola. Works effectively as part of a team, as a leader, or a one man band. Knows how to get projects started and how to bring them to completion. He speaks English, German, Spanish, and Portuguese and is based in New York City.  His films have been presented in numerous festivals including Rotterdam, Dubai, BAFICI, Sydney, CPH:DOX, DocLisboa, Sarasota among others.
