About Me


Tell some good stories through film


Grew up in different counties as a kid (Switzerland, USA, France) then traveled a lot on my own (Asia, South America, Australia) and now my work (film and video) takes me to many more places new and already known. My base is Madrid but I never turn down the opportunity to get on a plane. I invite anyone who's interested in what I do to check out on of the shorts films I made on youtube: It's called Tinto Verde

You only live once, and meeting people from around the world is definitely part of the adventure that makes it worth living and inspirational.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Whoever wants to come to Madrid is more than welcome to stay on my couch.
