ABOUT ME

In short words, I’m a hard working team player. I always help others, whenever and wherever I can.
Maybe because I have played a team sport most of my life, I’m aware of the fact, that you sometimes
have to give a lot extra. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and I therefore don’t accept things being half
or almost done… They have to be 100 %.
When approaching a project I always keep my mind open, choosing the right methods – achieving
the right solution is always a goal. I love to sit and sketch and draw, just as much as I love
to work with every little detail on the computer.
