I’m a multi-award winning, internationally experienced creative director and a highly committed leader. My wealth of interdisciplinary experience is ranging from major global brands to highly specialised products and services. 

My commercial sense, experience and creative instinct to help brands achieve greater fame and fortune, as well as my relentless perseverance, create great impact.

Under my leadership, my teams and I not only developed clients and brands into Lovebrands. We also successfully transformed 
Saatchi & Saatchi Düsseldorf from a traditional local advertising agency with just one main client into an international multi-client agency with its finger on the pulse of the times. With a differentiating and meaningful creative culture that was once again attractive to talent.

I am a member of the ADC Art Directors Club Germany since 2005. Throughout my career in some of Germany's most creative agencies, I have personally and together with my teams won over 120 awards for our work at all major festivals: including various Golden and Silver Cannes Lions, but also several Golden and Silver Effies. 

Besides business, I’m a father of two boys, a lover of art, architecture, design, photography and motorbikes. And a pretty good cook, at least that's what my wife says.
