Hi, I'm Nico.

I'm a 26-year-old filmmaker based in Hamburg, Germany. I love creativity and found my passion in creating visual work (in almost any shape or form) for the screen.

Having completed training as an Audio-Visual Media Engineer, I specialize in Motion Graphics, Compositing and Editing. Beside my professional activity I shoot and direct my own short films.

When I'm not working on a film project, I like to write, play and record music. I have been playing the piano, guitar and bass for almost 5 years now.
