I am a Freelance Art & Creative Director, based in Berlin, working all over the universe. I create experiences and stories, campaigns and designs, for brands and products, from draft to realization. My intention is to overlap and transform different subjects like advertising, design and art. I collaborate with agencies, photographers, artists and intelligent people to initiate and promote projects independently. What you get is my experienced intuition, curiosity and a splash of punk. Beyond that, my work earned major awards including Clio, Cannes Lions, ADC, NY Festival, etc.

What I do: creative direction, art direction, photoshoots, creative consulting, innovative ideas & conception, looks & imagery, brand communication, 360° multichannel marketing campaigns, tv commercials, social media & storytelling, dialog marketing, editorial design & catalogues, look books & magazines, event management, concepts for stores and exhibition.
