Summary

I started my first Job as an Intern at Crytek back in 2009.
From there I gathered 9 years of experience as an Artist at Crytek in Frankfurt Am Main, learning from many talented artists and designers who took me under their wing and showed me the ropes. At Crytek my roles included cinematics, general 3D, real-time graphics research, VR/Interactive experience designer and Lighting Artist.

In 2018 I left Crytek to spearhead my own project 'Brushify.io'. A terrain library generated using real-world LIDAR data. The aim of brushify.io is to offer high quality, high performance 3D environments at affordable prices.
