For more than ten years I worked for various e-business clients. This included illustrating and animating, conception, GUI designing and some scripting of flash games, microsites, video and motion design or designing app-icons and logos.
The last three years I was doing creatives for free-to-play games, microsites, facebook fanpages, roll up display banners with big names like EA, Universal Music, Supercell, Travian, Lenovo, Ford, Alpha Romeo, Sparkasse, Deutsche Kreditbank AG, IBM, real, Super RTL and RTL Disney Fernsehen just to name a few.

I was born and raised in western Germany state North Rhine Westphalia. I always loved to paint and draw cartoons and comics. In the early 80s, I fell in love with videogames on systems like Commodore 64 and ATARI 2600.
In the 90s I had an AMIGA 500 on which I experimented with sounds, graphics and animations. I got my second experience with digital picture editing on an Apple Mac at an advertising agency.
During my schooling, I searched for some program to animate cartoons. So I ended up in vectorizing hand drawn sketches and animate them in my first Flash Version 4.
After my apprenticeship as a graphic design assistant, I joined an unpaid intership at a webagency. There I created my first game. So I got my first job as a Flash Designer. And this is pretty much my story of how I got to what I am doing today: Illustrations and animations.
