Whether it's following a host up and down the Glaciers of Alaska or diving to the depths to comment on the wildlife of the Kelp bed you need a solid sound mixer that has been there before.

I've experience in recording sound underwater with the AGA mask, Howler Monkeys in Central America with the Holophone and Humpback Whales with hydrophones.

Added to that many Expedition Documentaries as the Location Sound Mixer, you can be sure you are getting the best sound possible.

I started with my first sound recording and soundscape composition studies and experiments at the end of the nineties.

From 2002 through 2008, I studied Media Art in Leipzig, Germany and turned more and more to wildlife sound recording as my prior discipline. As a freelance ornithologist and sound recordist, biological and ethological issues as well as the communication of acquired knowledge - via publications, presentations, lectures, documentaries, radio programs - constitute the fundamental parts of my work.

Due to extensive travelling to rather remote places and more than 60 trips on research ships, I used to work and live under difficult circumstances.

My private collection contains approximately 12,000 digital sound recordings from different animals as well as acoustic phenomena and sounds from natural and urban habitats.

Being a documentary cameraman for years I've specialised mainly in National History.

Next to this I have developed good experience as a Camera Assistant and Sound Recordist.

From the start of my first days in Film making I’ve gained much experience from pre- to post-production. I’m best described as a young cameraman with good knowledge of post production workflows and decent knowledge of the natural world.

Work at an equipment rental company and post production facility brought me good knowledge of both. Equipment-wise this has brought me good experience all sorts of cameras like the Red One, Alexa and DSLR. With the experience in such cameras, I have worked a lot as digital Clapper-loader on Dutch feature films an commercials.

I'd love to work story driven. I believe thats the only way. I love to work in teams but I’m very capable of working on my own as well. I’m self driven, fast in troubleshooting and always in search of new adventures!
