Here's some more info about me than just the short text found on the frontpage. You can find all kinds of stuff that I did so far. Recent places I worked at, a book I did and a list of talks that I gave at 3d graphics events.




I'm a 1981 born german allround 3d artist (with a slight focus on lighting/shading as well as heading productions trying to make everything flow in a streamlined fashion) currently working as a Senior 3d Artist for Aixsponza, which is a design and 3d studio based in Munich / Germany. I have been working on TV commercials as well as feature film. Postproduction companies I was working for include pictorion Das Werk Munich and Animationfabrik Hamburg / Cologne for example.

On the software side I'm using Cinema4d for my 3d work. But I also worked on projects in 3dsMax and XSI. Lately I've also been seen connecting two nodes together in Houdini (but I'm very much a beginner in this package) For compositing it's Fusion and AfterEffects for me.

Renderengines I feel proficient in are vray, Arnold, Octane and Redshift.

Additionally I started teaching 3d at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich as an assistant professor.



As the main body of my work is based in the world of TV commercials I haven't been collecting Hollywood blockbusters on my reel. It's a tiny one but there's an entry for me at the Internet Movie Database
