I am a freelance designer based in Munich, Germany. My strength and focus lies in motion graphic design, animation and art direction for a wide range of projects, from showroom trailers to film projects and opening titles. Passion and love drive me to create beautiful imagery and animation in every project I approach, no matter if it is live action, 2D or 3D animation – or everything combined.
In addition to my ever growing passion for moving images, I also design for print and web-based media, including logos, brochures, stationery, and animated, interactive websites. Thanks to a constantly expanding network of freelancers it is possible to approach me with nearly every type of project.
I am thankful to be among the few that were lucky enough to have learned from the best in the industry. So I like to give back, share my software expertise and help others become a better creative professional. This was reason enough to be the author of two Adobe After Effects training DVDs for video2brain. Clocking in with a total of more than 16 hours of training this should give anyone interested in AE a few good lessons.
For the past ten years I’ve also been frequently booked as a presenter and speaker at many international conferences, trade shows and creative events like Adobe Max in Milan, Cannes Lions Advertising Festival and Apple Pro Series Tour in Stockholm, Warsaw, Copenhagen, Rome, Madrid and also India. Mostly I am proud to be invited to speak about software programs such as Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, Illustrator and Apple Aperture. Currently, I am an Apple Certified Pro Level 1.
In November 2010 I have moved into a new studio space. It is in the same building as Scanwerk, who offer high-end scanning solutions, colorgrading and postproduction. Our lounge-style studio on the second floor offers enough space and rooms to let creativity flow, especially with Akira Endo and Steve Holmes being next door!
