Heiko was born in Gütersloh, where Bertelsmann is headquartered. An early infatuation with movies resulted in him screenwriting and directing in school (funny little videos, fortunately lost now).

He studied journalism and economics in Dortmund, Munich and Berlin and after his exams worked seven years for PriceWaterhouseCooper.

Since quitting that job in 1999 he has worked as a screenwriter, script editor and developer for various productions, mostly television. It includes a sitcom for RTL, a daily soap/telenovela (Verliebt in Berlin aka Le destin de Lisa) and the prime-time serial drama (Medical and Crime).
