Resumé

April 7, 2011

I am a jack-of-all-trades. I work under tight deadlines as a journalist, I travel the world creating adventure and travel documentaries, and I am the voice of many companies and brands as a narrator and video editor.

I am an ideas man who likes to be directly involved in the creative process. Copy-writing, editing and the technical stuff are not only my skills, they are my hobbies.
