Welcome to my corner
I grew up in a small town on the shore of beautiful Lake Geneva in Switzerland. At a young age I fell in love with music and the theater, and discovered with a degree of surprise that writing came easily for me. All this eventually led me to filmmaking, which I’ve been pursuing with passion for over three decades here, in San Francisco, California.

My first feature film Is It Heaven Yet? premiered at the San Francisco Film Festival in 1985 and received unanimous praise for its imaginative and unconventional brand of comedy. It was distributed around the world and was one of the first American independent films to have a successful run in Japan where it played for 13 consecutive weeks in Tokyo. My follow-up comedy film was the award-winning Chivalrous Deeds of a Nincompoop.

My last film was an adaptation of my drama/mystery novel Smile Again, Jenny Lee, which received a few awards and screened around the world. I'm now working on a comedy about a man who sees his wife alive two years after her death. The film is slowly working its way toward production in 2019.
