Jan's career started with a skateboard and a Hi8 camcorder.
After school he moved to Berlin and got in touch with film. While he was shooting a few shorts with friends, he made coffee and carried all the heavy stuff as a trainee for the "big business".
During this time he learned a lot and in 2005 he started his studies at the Filmacademy Baden-Württemberg.
Since 2010 he is back in Berlin, working as a DoP for commercials, documentaries and fictions movies.
