Lately my focus is on producing, project management and business stuff but my career began in 2008, working with the incredible team at Buck in New York as an animator and compositor. In 2013, after feeling a bit homesick, I returned home to Germany and worked with multiple studios, mostly in Berlin, as a freelance motion designer and VFX compositor.  

Starting in 2018, I reoriented myself and had the pleasure to become the Head of Production with the wonderful chaps at foam Studio, the commercial branch of Zeitguised. During that period I had the pleasure to work directly with clients Absolut, BASF & Microsoft and multiple international agencies. 

Currently I am a Creative Director at Woodblock Berlin. Together with a team of highly skilled artists, I am developing commercials, films & motion branding for clients like Gore Tex, Dell, IBM and N26.
