let me introduce myself.

A couple of years after I discovered the „lighting thing“ while I was still at school, I took the chance and started my apprenticeship at bright! creative event solutions as soon as I graduated. During that time, I quickly discovered the need for an easy way to write Hog2 fixture personalities, and started development of the „Wholehog 2 Library Generator“ in 2005. After three years full of learning at bright!, I went on and started to work as a technical support engineer and director of console development for German Light Products for two years. Although I really liked being involved in Development at GLP, I was desperately missing being out on the road. When I was asked by bright! to open their subsidiary in Hamburg in 2009, I moved to Hamburg and started working at bright! again.

At the end 2014 I took the chance and started my own company with a focus on lighting and media design, pre-visualization utilizing my own WYSIWYG license, programming (lighting, media and cross platform applications using Xojo and QT QML) and product consulting in an advisory capacity with regards to product development. Additionally, I am available to write or translate technical documentation and to produce tutorial videos.
