Los Angeles, California, United States


American native, schooled in Switzerland, started working in Los Angeles as an assistant to video artist Bill Viola, then assistant editing on documentaries for example Soul Of A Man by Wim Wenders and Dogtown and Z-Boys by Stacy Peralta, on Dogtown and Z-Boys I was mentored by the magnificent editor Paul Crowder and was given an Additional Editor credit. I went on to edit trailers at Antfarm and Mark Woollen Associates, editing the award winning trailers for 21 Grams and Lost In Translation. Moving back to Switzerland for family reasons I started editing fictional features, two of them namely Road Rascals and Grounding went on to enjoy great box office and critical success in Switzerland. At the swiss national television station I edited 22 documentaries in 4 years. Relocated to Los Angeles in 2010, I am working out of my home studio. Currently I am editing a feature documentary about Greenland.
