ABOUT

Nice to meet you!

 
WEB_Profile.png

I was born in a small town in East Germany and was 4 years old when the wall came down. From there I started my journey, worked and studied in various cities including Paris, Los Angeles and New York. Since almost 10 years I call Berlin my home. I have more than 8 years of work experience that includes brand identity, art direction, concept creation, digital design and creative leadership. I want to create ideas that matter in a way of being disruptive, simple, thought provoking and nice to look at. As I‘m always hungry for good creation, I tend to be restless and very dedicated to my work. My attitude is open-minded and involves a fresh 360˚approach inspired by fashion design, contemporary art, pop culture and music.
