I am a Berlin-based traditional & VR animator, illustrator, and motion designer with an enthusiasm for new technologies and programming, which comes from spending the first 10 years of my career as a developer & designer and among other things helping to build a unicorn startup from the ground up as their first full-time engineer and designer; and seeing it grow to over 500 employees over 4 years.
In 2020 I decided to pursue my ambitions in a creative field and do what I always dreamed of doing - animation. Over the past 3 years, I have been fortunate to work with amazing clients on creatively challenging projects involving short films, animated illustrations, product trailers, explainers, and VR content.
I enjoy and embrace utilizing the newest tools like VR, AI, or coding to achieve exciting results. I have made great experiences using Quill, Unreal Engine, Unity, and Blender to create some of my latest 3D animations in VR. Ultimately, I want to create delightful experiences, whether it is in the form of linear media, an app, or an immersive experience!
At the same time, I love the artistry behind 2D frame-by-frame animation. There is just something magical that comes from bringing something to life by single-handedly drawing every frame. It is tedious work, and yet it has a meditative aspect to it. I am trying to spark the same joy in others, that's why I created the #30DayAnimator course.
I would love to work with you on projects involving the following things:
If you would like to know more about me, I also write, produce videos, and create tools to improve animators' workflows.
