I have been working in various areas of the creative industry since 2008 and started my own business in mid-2018. Five years I worked in Berlin agencies and two more as freelancer in Australia and New Zealand. Through my journey I was diving into another life and so I learned a lot about other countries, people from all over the world and especially about myself.

Working as a freelancer had some advantages. The biggest one was, that I was able to get more creative influences from working in several agencies. My last permanent job was in a Berlin based post-production company for 3.5 years. Mainly I was working on projects for advertising agencies, photographers and fashion labels.

At all of these stations I gained a lot of experience and knowledge about the whole process of bringing ideas to life. I created ideas for advertising campaigns, did some Photo shootings, created a lot of layouts, spent many hours with image research, processed many images, created composing and final artworks. All of this helps me to help you. Before, during and after the project. In the end it is important to me that you are happy and everything looks as you imagined.

I look forward to hear from you.
