From year 2001 to 2003, I was the Technical Officer of the The PostHouse Ltd. (now Optix Digital), the company that did the digital color grading for the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy.

Currently, I'm working for ARRI in Munich. I have written the The ARRI Companion to Digital Intermediate. You will find a link here.

I enjoy performances in the Munich Opera.

Iím interested in photography. Years ago I had my own b&w darkroom. After some time I wanted to do color as well. But doing color by yourself is too much hassle. So I put it down for a while. Two years ago, after some experience with a Coolpix, I considered to buy a digital SLR. Looking around at ebay I realized I can have a complete Mamiya 6x4.5 system for less than a semi-pro Canon or Nikon DSLR. I never regret it. Ok, I pop out some money for the scans but I shoot not so much. You can look at some of my photos at flickr.
