I am a designer living and working in Berlin, Germany. I was born here in Germany‘s northern territories in 1966, have been raised in the south on the outskirts of Munich and went back to Hamburg after school.
From 1993 to 1999 I went to college in Bielefeld and returned with a design degree in the field of typography from my highly respected, retired, but still actively designing Professor Gerd Fleischmann. The most important lesson we were taught from Fleischmann was, that for doing design, it is necessary to understand and to have an opinion.
I made my first web site in 1995 during an internship at Eden in Amsterdam. Since 1996 I make my living designing software applications for the web – photoshopping, sketching, drafting concepts, collaborating, building prototypes, leading teams. Besides my own freelance business, I have been Creative Director and Head of Design at SinnerSchrader, Product Designer at CoreMedia, Managing Director at BBDO Germany and just recently led the Digital Health and Insurance Department at Aperto.

This website is made with WordPress, installed and hosted by myself on remote webspace. I believe it is important to keep some basic things in life under direct control. The WordPress theme is a modified GeneratePress, hacked by friend and neighbour Markus Zielniok. The font is a modified ITC Quay, developed in 1995 by my typography class in college.
