I believe that technology provides endless ways to express creativity and can help brands create seamless and engaging experiences that deliver value to users regardless of channel or platform: from entertainment to services, from digital to physical.

I am Creative Director in charge of integrated campaigns at thjnk Hamburg. Prior to joining thjnk, I was Creative Director at BBDO Berlin, Executive Creative Director at BBDO Interone and Creative Director at Razorfish Frankfurt. Previously, I had spent four successful years with Jung von Matt, culminating in Jung von Matt being voted the number one “Independent Agency of the Year” at Cannes Lions in 2010, number three in 2011, and number two in 2012. My team won 75 awards in the space of just three years.

The work on prestigious accounts over the last 20 years has been honored at Cannes Lions, Clio, One Show, Design & Art Direction, Favourite Website Awards and Art Directors Club – to name just a few. I served as a judge at leading creative award shows such as the New York Festivals, German Advertising Film Award or the Art Directors Club Germany.

Since 2011 I have been a member of the Art Directors Club Germany and D&AD.
