For more than 23 years I have been a creative force in the digital environment. Starting as a frontend developer, then turning into a creative.
As a Creative Director, my goal is to lead my team to create unique (interactive) solutions and experiences with fun and a twist, and to keep pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.
Too often these days, you see brands that are literally overrun by digital transformation – something that doesn’t have to be. Brands should proactively shape the digital transformation themselves – and with the symbiosis of technology, conception and creativity, I’m the perfect partner for that.

Creative Director digital / interactive
Since 2015, I have been supporting companies and agencies in the execution of digital & interactive projects as well as in setting up digital agile workflows and processes.
- Oktober 2018 - September 2021
Head of interactive
From October 2018 to September 2021, I was co-responsible for building and leading a digital team and the corresponding digital shift of Select World. I managed international digital & socialmedia campaigns of big premium brands like Douglas, Miele, Acqua die Parma, Seb Man, Nivea, Wella, etc.
- April 2016 - Dezember 2021
Lecturer for digital campaigns & digital thinking

- Januar 2013 - Dezember 2014
Art Director digital
Kmf Werbung / UDG
Through my talents as an all-rounder (creative & technical conception, design, video production, programming), projects could be perfectly implemented and customers accompanied into a secure digital future. My analytical-technical thinking has found a home here in my love for processes.
- August 2011 - Oktober 2012
Art Director Interaction Design
I was able to really live out my love of digital technologies here. Whether it was (at the time) groundbreaking HTML5 video players or interactive kiosk systems at the POS. Here I was able to draw on the full potential.
- May 2010 - Juli 2011
jun. Art Director
Davies Meyer GmbH
Already in my first agency it became apparent that the "corset" of the art director was too narrow for me. In addition to design, I also took care of the technical conception & implementation of campaigns. From the simplest little AR gimmicks to high-engagement games on clients' websites.
- September 2003 - Juli 2009
Dipl. Designer multimedia | virtual reality design
Burg Giebichenstein, University of Art & Design Halle
My fascination with new and forward-looking technologies extended not only to technology, but also to the visual - and so I decided to study design in precisely this area. Today - almost 15 years later - these fundamentals are more relevant than ever. AR, MR and VR are finally conquering the consumer market.
- Mai 2003 - April 2010
Wieprich Werbeagentur, Spirit Link GmbH
Very early came the desire not only to work "behind the scenes", but also to design what was output on end devices. So I accompanied several agencies as a freelance designer during my design studies.
- August 2000 - Juli 2004
Softwarehaus Ruppach GmbH, Selog GmbH, Prologa GmbH
The dotcom hype didn't pass me by either, and so I spent 4 years helping to develop WebApps at various companies (at that time they were simply called "Web 2.0"). I experienced and survived the big crash back then.
- September 2000 - September 2003
Computer science studies
Martin-Luther University Halle/Wittenberg
Apprenticeship as a computer scientist was not enough for me - I wanted to know what "holds the digital world together at its core" and plunged into the study of theoretical computer science.
- September 1998 - Juni 2000
