I am a designer/director working mostly in the area of motion graphics. Graphic and interaction design as well as app design and development round up my portfolio.

I have many years of experience in working closely together with clients, developing and translating creative ideas into powerful visual experiences. During my studies in Vienna and New York, I developed a keen interest in the usability of design, which I have pursued ever since.

Unlike regular designers I combine multiple design tools with scripting and programming. By fusing these skills I am able to create new visual styles and increase workflow efficiency.

I am a responsible and cooperative team worker and have successfully lead teams of up to five artists.
