What are your credentials/past experience for working in your position?
I have over 20 Years of Digital Experience, Art & Design, and it took me six years to complete my First Oil Painting.
I began my career as a Digital Designer as a Freelancer in 2003, and I got awarded a Scholarship to study Communication Design from 2005-2007. After that, I quit studying because it was too theory-based for me. I preferred more practical learning – real jobs, so I continued working with “Joinr” 2006-2009.
I was involved as a Product UI Designer in a German Start-Up Community to optimize the platform and branding. From 2006-2011 I worked with Gleis4 Streetwear, a co-partner of a fashion design brand from Austria, by carrying out the Creative Direction & Photography.
While working on an E-Commerce Startup for Hair Products, I learned more about Online Marketing. After all of this experience in Art, Design, Creative, Direction & Business Development, I met Julian 2012. We had the same vision about moving forward to create an Agency. Every Step was learning by doing and with risk & fun!

All of these
What are the values that drive you?
Life is an ongoing process, and I always strive for new possibilities. Looking at ways you can improve, what helps you, and how to create added value are essential to the creative process. These are the questions I ask myself every day; what motivates me is unlimited possibilities to live out creatively. I believe the change of man & technology strives the curiosity for more creativity.
“No risk = no fun!”
