I am a dad to three wonderful unschooled children. As a young boy, I fell in love with a typewriter, a cassette recorder, a glue stick, and paper. The results were handmade newspapers and audiobook stories. A few years later, this passion of mine turned into a profession. I became a journalist in Berlin and learned all about editing, screenwriting, and interviewing people.
I founded YoungCre8ors for all those kids and teens who love creating just as much as I do!
My sessions are no place for dry old-school teaching. Instead it is a welcoming space for kids and teens to explore their creative ideas in a respectful environment. I am here to share my skills, supporting the journey from idea to a finished product, but it’s the participants who shape the makers space.
The results are stunning and I don’t just mean the products but also the individual growth that happens when kids and teens are able to express themselves creatively.
For the last 19 years, I have been working in education settings in the UK, Austria, and Portugal, while following my passion for filmmaking and running nature groups for dads and their children.
I was born in East Germany and have since made the most of my freedom having lived in eight countries and slow-travelling all over Europe with my family, gleaning inspiration from isolated mountain hamlets in Spain, buzzing bazars in Turkey or milking goats on a Danish island.
In 2015 I published my parenting book “The Empathic Father” (OTF, London). I am also writing for parenting magazines in the UK, Australia, NZ, and the US.
I produce video and graphic design content for businesses in Austria, Spain, and the UK and I also teach filmmaking, debate, history and other formats online.
