My name is Matthias and I was born in 1973 in Berlin, then commonly referred to as West Berlin. I left Germany in 2001 to study and work in England and later studied and worked in South Korea, Thailand and the North of Ireland/Northern Ireland.

Prior to my late entry into academia, I tried unsuccessfully to enter film schools, but worked successfully as a cinema projectionist and events technician in Berlin, Hamburg, London. and Belfast. Studying and working in four countries has greatly enriched my life and brought me in touch with a wide range of people and their diverse view points. Film, photography and writing have remained passions of mine and I am using them as tools to collect impressions and memories.
