From 2009 until 2015 I was Creative Director, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Brightside Games.
I studied Media Design in Nuremberg and Human Factors in Berlin. I am teaching various game related subjects at game schools and universities. Before focusing on the games industry I was a freelance interactive designer and developer for about 10 years and worked on special effects in the movie industry for a while. My love for games started playing Pac-Man against my twin brother on the Atari 800XL. I developed my own first games in 1996.
