If you encouter walls, you have to learn to break them down or find a way around them.

I am a game designer, programmer and digital native. In my projects I am a perfectionist and I will work on a problem until it is fixed or until I have tried everything… If this fails, I will use the “hammer-method” – small pieces can create new things.

If you can not climb the wall on your own, you can always rely on your team.

I am a teamplayer. I especially love the work in an interdisciplinary team. I often take the role of communicator between the disciplines and I work to hold everything together. I enjoy team programming.

Ad astra. – To the stars.

Creating things together motivates me to go beyond my limits and to never stop learning.
