I was...

... born in Hamburg, Germany, in 1990 but moved out to the countryside around Lübeck shortly after. 

After 10 years of school in Germany I won an Art-Scholarship at Felsted school in Essex, England where I finished off my Highschool degree with an A-Level. 

Following this I returned to Germany where I worked in a children's home for 9 months as part of the then still obligatory draft, and then spent 2 years in Hamburg working for the advertising agency Kolle-Rebbe and preparing my portfolio for college applications. 

I ended up at Rhode Island School of Design (RiSD) on the American east coast. Where I spent 4 Years getting my BFA (bachelor of fine arts) in illustration.

Now... 

... I am back in northern Germany, working on both Personal projects as well as taking commissions for Illustration work. 

As for my qualifications, I speak both accent-free German and English.
Most of my technical is experience with Storyboarding, Writing and Cinematography.
Furthermore I am proficient with both Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator as well as having a working knowledge of InDesign, PremierPro, Final Cut X, After Effects, Blender, and Unity. 

I am proficient with computers (both MacOS and Windows) though not an IT professional. I am not very good at coding of any kind with possible exception of HTML but that doesn't really count as coding anyway. I can however make sense of a block of basic code with context and will be able to edit it to a degree if the job requires cooperation with computer science professionals. 

On the Fine arts side. I do some oil-painting and black and white sketching,  as well as assorted fine arts projects as they come along. I also am an abstract photographer and am working on experiments with virtual reality.
