About Me

Hi there!

I'm glad you followed the white rabbit and arrived at my online store!

Here's me in a nutshell: After graduating with a BA in Communications, I spent the first four years of my career in advertising working on big brands and products. It was exciting at the beginning by the end of it I felt my soul had been sucked out of my body and it was time for a change. 

So I saved money for a year, learned basic German and moved to Berlin with nothing but hope and dreams. 

Luckily I was eventually able to find full-time employment as a User Interface designer, however I was then exposed to how half-assed startup companies really are!

So after two years of that I came to two major realizations. We are only on this rock for a limited amount of time and we should do what we love, and what I do and always have loved was illustration. Going back to my doodling days as a child,my comics and flash animations as a teen and my BA thesis in the form of a graphic novel. If I am going to spend such a large portion of my life working, it most definitely must be something I love doing, oh and the second realization was that if I was going to do it, I was going to do it independently. Pushing my work through my own name and no longer through the Brand XYZs I've spent so many years working on as a nameless faceless cubicle occupier!

I am illustrator. Hear me ROAR!
