I was born in Dortmund, a city at the heart of the Ruhr area. Growing up, I spent my time reading, drawing, and people watching. At the age of 15 I obtained an internship in a graphic design studio. At that time everything was still analogue, which I really liked. After my A-levels I wanted to work on TV series: being at a different location everyday seemed so exciting. A year later a new chapter in my life began with an apprenticeship as a media designer. After completing my certificate I applied to study journalism and was accepted, but decided to return to where my journey began: I graduated from Mainz with a diploma in Communication Design in 2009.

I have always been a passionate collector of magazines; they contain everything that I love dealing with: photography, journalism, design. My work is now focused on developing magazines and creative management. With the publication of my own book in 2010, Dich ohne Schminke – Wir sind das Ruhrgebiet, I realised one of my dreams. Happily, it sold out.

After having lived in Mainz and Berlin, I now live and work in Hamburg.
