About Me


preparing for my BA in Graphic Design (means creating a really good design project)


Together with my girlfriend Bianca I'm living just outside of Vienna in our cozy apartment.
Right now I'm finishing my BA in Graphic Design in Vienna and work as a freelance comic book artist and illustrator. I love most things that have to do with any creative activity! :)

I write and read a lot, started studying philosophy, japanology, romance studies and animation in the past. I'm trying to get as much knowledge of the world as possible. On that path I realized the more I learn the more I see how little I actually know.

Film and music are also a great passion of mine, directing short films every now and then and sometimes writing musical dramas.


live and let live
