Born into a German / Bolivian family I was raised in Toronto, Canada and moved to Munich, Germany when I was six. This exotic family combo left its mark on me ever since with being extroverted and lively on the one side but rational and calm on the other.
Creativity accompanied me my whole life - working with plasticine and lego wholeheartedly in my younger days and quickly developing towards painting in my teen years. After graduating my A-levels with majors in Art and English I gained first experience in the advertising and agency life while working for Heye DDB in Munich.
I studied Communication design in Munich and as an online kid and nerd I worked for zeros+ones - a fully digital agency - and it was clear to me that digital would be my thing from then on. With an abroad stay at the Hyvinkää School of Art in Finland I could develop my traditional painting skills and this influenced me sustainably.
Once I finished my studies I started working for Serviceplan, Europe's biggest independent agency, to which I stayed loyal for the last 5 years. In this time I developed from Junior Art Director to a Creative Director.
In those years I had the chance to work on smaller and bigger but always exciting projects and clients from different sectors. With an abroad stay at Serviceplan Middle East in Dubai in 2012 I had the possibility to get to know a new culture and the way of working in an arabic country.
Even though my job includes long days and demanding tasks I always kept my painting time as it keeps my mind sharp and refreshes my creativity.
Let's see whats gonna come up next!
