What I can do for You


There is nothing that can't be modeled and textured in 3D. I may model your product, your house, your environment, your character, your animal or any fiction you want to see in digital reality. Preferably in Autodesk Maya but not essentially.

Unity3D Expert

Integration of Assets into Realtime-Engines is an important skillpoint for the modern digital artist. There is a lot more to it than just drag'and'droping the asset into the game. It needs deep knowledge in workflow-definition, testing, performance profiling and asset-organization if you want to have a clean and functional application at the end.

Concept Art, 2D-Design & Texturing

I develop simple apps or prototypes for Mobile, PC or HTC Vive. If you want to take a first look into the capabilities of interactive design for your brand or product, this is your way in.

Animation & Storyboard

If there is something visually to explain then you need a sketch. If there is some story tell then you need a storyboard.

Virtual Reality Expertise

Virtual Reality is the biggest variable in the media-industry. Only a Hype? Just a trending topic? I show you that VR has more to it than meets the eye. You want to amaze people, make people aware of your sensible topic, bring them something closer? There is no better medium than VR for that.

Workflow & Pipeline-Knowhow

Each and every project has its peculiar goals and needs. Artists and Directors want to work as freely as possible in this world of technical hurdles. I can help build up your pipeline, your project structure and help solve problems and issues for your movie, game or other project you want to realize.
