My passion is drama and I am constantly looking for ambitious timers, interesting projects - including corporate commissioned films - and roles that add something to my experience.
Since 2016 until now I play main or supporting roles in student films (also internationally) and small roles in large portions and series
After I discovered the joy of acting in front of the camera in 2015 after working as a professional training actor for 25 years. Delivering credible and consistent behavior in a realistic setting was my core competence.
In the 80s - after the Theater School in Warsaw (directing) - I mainly directed and taught.

Widely applicable. Passionate professional, with character & charisma, receptive & reliable, serious & sensitive, tough & tender, intense & inspiring. I speak almost accentless Polish and German, good English and French on a conversational level..

THE SANDS by Joshua Krull was in Sept. 2016 "trailer of the month" on the web.
