EXPERIENCE 15+ years  ·  LEVEL Professional  ·  FINAL DEGREE Dipl. Media Designer

I am a Hamburg based Art and Creative Director who focuses on digital projects but is familiar with all other areas of advertising, design and communication. My clients include some of Germany’s most recognized and largest advertising agencies and companies. During my 15 years of work experience I created all kinds of different projects – starting from a simple online banner to an entire brand launch.

My strength lies in the automotive sector (Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, etc.), but I love to work for all kinds of industries and brands. No matter whether I am hired as the creative lead or as a designer – the team always comes first. I work with an unpretentious hands on approach and offer a wide range of different skills.

Since 2016 I am a proud father. My little family is my most precious project.
