Grown up in germany's southwest, the "Hunsrück", an area with idyllic forests and american nuclear missiles. Due to my finnish mama, I spent much time in finland (I don`t drink vodka though, but like FINNISH TANGO). Youth in Tongeren near Maastricht (where I met Drum and Hoegarden). Graphic design studies in Maastricht and diploma in communication design in Saarbrücken with famous dutch guest teacher Gert DUMBAR (Studio Dumbar) and notorious Ivica MAKSIMOVIC (Ex-Maksimovic and Partners) which both influenced me (actually Ivica much more – you can see how I like to use irritating Headlines). Intern in Düsseldorf at GREY, where I learned how to NOT do things – mainstream advertising. Then, much better, changing to DDB as Junior-AD working with cool creatives on Sony and first Shooting with Anatol Kotte! Moving to Berlin in 2000 enjoying the last ILLEGAL pop-up clubs. Started DJ-ing and freelancing, mostly for Scholz & Friends. First ADC-medals role (they come automatically I have to say). Art-director on Baden-Württemberg at S&F in Family 3 which shaped me like the POSTPUNK music I heard that time. Then other smaller agencies with more familiar atmo, but exciting productions like a DANDY Cookbook and shootings in TAHITI. Since 2015 freelancing again and ENJOYING it playing all the wisdom I gathered over the years ; ) Apart from doing advertising I like to spend time with the FAMILY, care for sourdoughs, travel and do pop-up dinners with strange dishes.
