Vi-Dan was born in Cologne. At the age of 11, he started his training in Wushu with master Sang Yeul Kim and won several gold and silver medals in the wushu styles Zui Quan, Ditang Quan and Hou Quan.
In his youth his skateboard and inline skates were of great importance to him. For 4 years he concentrated on skating and achieved the first place in the Powerade Best Trick Contest.
At the age of 19, together with 6 friends, he founded Teambay:
a stunt team which focus on XMA, Tricking, Free Running and Hongkong Fights.
After hesitating for a long time, Vi-Dan began his studies in Media Design focusing on film at the University of Aachen in 2006. At this stage of life, a new passion aroused in him: MAKING MOVIES!
During his studies he deepened his knowledge in the field of directing, camera, editing, vfx and sound designing. Amongst other things, he also pursued the field of photography and illustration.
