Available to hire

I work as a freelancing 3d animator, technical director and sculptor in Berlin, Germany. I started freelancing in 1997 and have been self employed ever since. I love character related work and most of the jobs I have been hired for over the years have been character or cloth related. However, during my career I have touched upon almost all areas of 3d work, including modelling, sculpting, architecture and product visualization, rendering, technical rigging, script and plug-in development, motion graphics and simulations.

My background is more artistic than technical. As a young adult I wanted to draw comics. I started to work with the Computer rather late and initially without much enthusiasm. So it surprised me as much as anybody else to discover that I not only enjoyed 3d, but also writing code.

By shifting the focus of my 3d work more and more towards character animation, I have come very close to what I dreamed of as a young man: telling a story with images.

In addition i love to sculpt with all sorts of clay. And to cross the boundaries between the digital and the real world by using 3d scanning and printing and creating plaster casts. I call it tradigital tinkering.
