I am an animator, director and educator with two decades of production experience on feature films, TV commercials and games/interactive. My character animation credits include the Academy Award winning feature film ‘Happy Feet’ and its sequel ‘Happy Feet 2’, the TV launch commercial for the BioShock game, as well as work on the VFX features ‘Iron Man 3’, ‘Riddick’, and ‘Now You See Me’. German films I worked on in the last years were the animated feature film ‘The 7th Dwarf’, and as Lead Animator on the live action feature films 'Saphirblau' and 'Smaragdgrün'. If I find the time and am not distracted by the beauty of the world around me, I create my own narrative or experimental shorts.
