I am a Graphic Designer, a german citizen, a dad and proud owner of a great pyrenees-border collie mix named Luke. Because of that, I like to get things done as efficient as possible. Whether it be layout for catalogs or brochures, product or portrait photography, image retouch, project management, or getting kid and dog into the car, executing in a timely and goal oriented matter are key.

Of course, you sometimes run into a conflict e.g. when the kid doesn't want to sit in the car seat. Here, problem solving, conflict management, willingness to learn and a good portion of empathy are in order. Good communication within the team and with the client is the basis of success. Being a native german speaker, fluent in english and knowing the basics of french helps me to do just that. Interested? Let's get in touch!

To show you some of my webdesign and webdevelopment skills I created this online resume based on a free bootstrap theme called brandy. Enjoy!
