Hello, hoi, zdravo, bok, ciao, salut

I am a writer and director. My autobiographical pieces of writing are diary-like which means they are led by intuition and instant emotions. My visual practice is playful and includes experiment and coincidence, trial and error. I like to work autoethnographically. I graduated in visual anthropology at Goldsmiths University in 2018, London.
Prior to my studies, I worked as a journalist in radio, TV and online media (3sat, SRF, Arte). Besides that, I work on different film projects as a script supervisor/ script continuity for Swiss films.

My parents are from the former Yugoslavia. I was born and raised in Switzerland. Quesions of identity and belonging are key to my work.

I love deep conversations and can enjoy small talk.
