* 12. February 1976, Paderborn, Germany
In 1992 I seriously started to paint and draw. Between 1993 and 1994 I worked as a restorer with my main focus on sculpturing. From 1994 to 1996 I visited a college for technical design assistants in product development in Bielefeld. I then continued painting, drawing and worked with photography which I financed as a model maker and screen printer at the British Rhine Army in Paderborn.
In 1999 I finally decided to study Fine Arts at Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel. During my studies I predominantly worked in the areas of installation, video and animation.
Between 2000 and 2003 I worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for the sport and lifestyle magazine "Brett" in Kiel, Germany.
Since 2003 I work as a freelancer, predominantly in the areas of concept-film and animation, but also visualisation, graphic design and illustration.
Some of my clients: Mutabor/Hamburg | Ligalux/Hamburg | Unilever/Hamburg | mueller/romca Industrial Design, Kiel/Hamburg | IDEO/München | gravity/München | Ocean Mind emotion pictures, Kiel.
Since 2001 I am working on ideas of miscellaneous scenarios and plots for movie and other storytelling media.
From 2001 to 2003 I have been working on one of my main projects "Fluxion" - a movie concept.
From 2004 to 2008 I have been working on my short movie project " Blowboy - The Epic of Panta Rhei ".
