I am an artist and filmmaker with a background in dance. London based, originally from Switzerland with Czech and Argentinean roots, I studied fine art at Swarthmore College, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) and the Royal Drawing School on The Drawing Year. I graduated from the National Film and Television School (NFTS) in 2018 with an MA in Directing Animation. My award-winning graduation film Triptych blurred the lines between fiction and documentary, combining original archives, animation and live action dramatizations with actors, and screened at BAFTA and Oscar qualifying festivals internationally. In 2022 I was one of two directors selected by a panel including Writer-Director Jonathan Glazer to create a short film for the Wiener Holocaust Library.

As part of my ongoing professional development I have attended workshops with Anna Scher Theatre,  Hazel Marshall and the Royal Opera House. I was a participant of the Zurich Film Festival Masterclass and SWISS FILMS’ first feature development workshop “Talent Day”. Alongside developing my own film projects I work as an Archive Producer on history documentaries, working for Paul Greengrass, Hannah Berryman, James Erskine, October Films, RAW TV, 72 Films, The Garden and Mindhouse Productions.
