Jan is driven by the belief that the best way to make things happen is simply by doing them. He started hands on producing for an advertising film production in Munich, where he was responsible for clients such as Burger King, BMW and Mini. For another period, Jan followed his passion for photography to NYC where he assisted numerous Beauty photographers. Back in Berlin he founded his studio in Berlin, Kreuzberg in 2009 and went on to directed fashion and music videos as well as TVCs for FMCG, including whitening toothpaste and green beer. Today, Jan lives in Berlin with his family and is currently working on his long term project, the TV-Series "Berlin ninety" about men who can't man up when it comes to women.
Jan teaches Photography and Film for Al Jazeera, Qatar and the School of Popular Arts in Berlin. He is the most happy when he can do a boyish grin behind his monitor.
