I'm an up-and-coming Director/Producer/Consultant for Animation and Virtual Reality Experiences. My animated VR short film SONAR was selected by international festivals including Sundance and Cannes. Before specializing in VR, I gathered experience working in the German CG & VFX industry on commercials and short films. In 2016 I was a Layout Artist on the Emmy nominated DEAR ANGELICA, an illustrated VR Experience created by Oculus Story Studio. After moving back to Germany I decided to start my own studio to produce animated narrative content for VR & AR.
