After his graduation, he went to Berlin, where he is still living with his girlfriend. His first role in a feature film was Raus aus der Haut (1997) (TV), directed by Andreas Dresen. In the following years, he appeared in critically acclaimed projects such as Soloalbum (2003), Kammerflimmern (2004) or Wilde Leben, Das (2007), which brought him several important awards.
