I am a digital artist hailing from and based in Munich, Germany. I studied Recording Arts and Visual Effects in Germany and the United Kingdom and am a self taught photographer. I have worked in the media industry in varying roles such as sound designer, audio engineer, DVD author, editor and vfx compositor for 15 years.
I have always had a strong passion for moving images and sound and love it when the two come together to create a synergy that is greater than each part alone.
Apart from taming waveforms and pushing pixels and polygons, music has always played a major role in my life and I have played guitar in various bands through most of my teens and twenties.
When I am not in front of a computer or behind a lens trying to create something cool, one can usually find me at rock concerts, galleries, with my nose in a book, hiking the alps or running along trails, parks or the streets of my city preparing for the next long distance race.
This homepage documents my ongoing journey in the digital arts. Feel free to look around, leave a comment or get in touch.
