Born and grown up in West Germany, after school i finished an education as an advertising technician.
After this education i started to study graphic design at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Dortmund. Having finished the basic studies i decided to go to Rio de Janeiro for one semester. In Rio de Janeiro i worked in an advertising agency with the focus on web & interactive graphics, where my passion for this topic started. Back in good old Germany, i started working as a freelancer and tutor for flash at our University in Dortmund, while keeping my concentration to my studies, which I have finished with a Diploma, in April 2010.
