Alex gained his first experience in filmmaking while graduating in classical piano studies at Robert-Schumann-Hochschule Düsseldorf (Prof. Yumiko Maruyama). It was his passion for music, that led him to filmmaking,. He started directing beneficial concerts for Die Toten Hosen. After these first steps as a director during his studies at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg he focused more and more on character-driven, emotional storytelling. In 2020 he won the Cannes Young Director Award and German Advertising Award as a Newcomer, among many other awards.
