When I was little I thought I would become a famous animator like Hayao Miyazaki.

Now I've become a designer and bartender. Scroll down to seen my full story.

About me
I'm a designer and illustrator with a passion for bringing ideas to life across various fields including editorial and character design, film storyboarding, and comics. I also dive into photography and manage social media, capturing moments and engaging with audiences online. My love for movies, comics, and books has not only entertained me but educated me on important political, cultural, and economic issues that I had previously overlooked.
Growing up, I was deeply influenced by pop culture, including video games, mangas, and anime from creators like Hayao Miyazaki, Akira Toriyama, and Hideo Kojima. My later studies introduced me to influential designers such as Christoph Niemann and Stefan Sagmeister, whose work continues to inspire me.
When I'm not busy, I love taking photos with my cameras, playing chess, reading comics or books, and hanging out with friends at new cafes and restaurants. I really enjoy having people over, cooking for them, and mixing drinks.
You might be curious about the photo of me in a bar. The story is, during my time at an agency, I fell in love with bartending. This newfound passion took me on an adventure, working as a professional bartender in notable spots like Cafe Kosmos, Ruby Lilly Hotel, Ory Bar at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and Bar Uno. Currently, I'm crafting cocktails at Bar Montez in the Rosewood Hotel Munich, continuing my journey in the world of mixology.
Throughout my journey, my core identity as a designer remained intact, even as I explored the world of bartending. During and shortly after the COVID period, I diversified my design experience, working as a graphic designer for a solar company, taking on the role of Junior Art Director in an advertising agency, and contributing to the Munich Police Department's press office as a designer with a focus on photography and social media. While working as a bartender, I never stopped doing freelance work. This helped keep my passion for design and illustration alive. Balancing these two worlds made me even more excited about my design work, pushing me to dive back into freelancing as a graphic designer, ready and eager for new creative projects.
