About Me

I'm filmmaker, webdesigner and cook.

Amongst the social violence we encounter all around us in contemporary times, I seek the enlightenments of everyday life; those little gestures, words, rhythms and acts that challenge oppression.
My works can take the form of live performances, organized food events, documentary films, and quotidian interventions. My research has brought me to an alternative radio station in the under-UN-occupation Kosovo, to follow a football tournament in the suburbs of Algiers, to ask for the future of ‘illegal-alien’ friends in Paris, to question my artists colleagues about regular jobs, to organize an organic food network in Buenos Aires, to fly with the kites of a Rio de Janeiro favela...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- Living in Pristhina, Kosovo in a shared-flat with the avant-guard of the kosovar political opponent (but more philosophers than established)
