My career life began 1998 in the center of Germany near Mannheim where I trained and worked as a mechanic at Mercedes Benz for 5 years. During those years, I professionally developed my lifelong passion for music and became a DJ for the award-winning rap-combo Camouflage Baggage. I went on to curate a DVD Soundtrack for a film on the underground movement of train graffiti in Europe, entitled Sweet Dreams and spinned records in South-Germanys Clubs. Music was my segue into the creative world and inspired me to expand my artistic abilities as a graffiti writer and photographer. Having a strong eye for visuals, I pursued a degree in Communication Design in the mid 2000s. Putting my graphic design and coordination skills to use, I founded the bi-lingual independent digital magazine LegitMag that lasted until 2010 and featured content on Art, Music and Sneaker Culture.

For the past eight years I have been working and traveling with the sports giant Nike, Inc. Several positions have taken me to Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin, Dortmund, Vienna, Barcelona, Madrid, Amsterdam, Dubai, Portland and other cities. In those Brand Marketing Roles I have been tasked to create, distribute and evaluate digital communication and event campaigns in Soccer, Running and Lifestyle Categories.

My results driven and focused communications over the years have played integral roles in my teams abilities to meet their marketing objectives and sales targets. Furthermore, my passion for creativity and athletics, combined with my design and musical skills have contributed to the overall look and feel of our brand campaigns.

My love for sports motivated me to participate in several running and cycling events all around the globe e.g. Velothon Berlin, Frankfurt-Eschborn Tour, TourDetroit, Berlin Marathon, Lauf zwischen den Meeren, Hood to Coast Relay, Halfmarathon Berlin, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Mannheim.

On the musical side of things I am taking care of the german Boogie and Funk Act First Touch.
