Summary

I'm a director and cg-artist from Berlin with a dedication to film and animation and a strong technological background.
During my studies at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg I developed a fascination for computer graphics and its experimental use for telling compelling stories.
During and after my studies I gathered experience as an artist at several companies including Psyop NY and Sehsucht Berlin.
I currently work at Electric Theatre Collective as a CG generalist with a focus on FX and LookDev.
