Always being inspired by art, creativity, design and innovation, I started my graphic design career in 1997 at a boutique advertising agency in Stuttgart, Germany. This very first job taught me everything: from new client acquisition, layout & typography to innovative design and administration. My first clients were Mercedes-Benz AG, Schiwa and many other local businesses.
After completing my Bachelor’s Degree in Communication & Advertising at Suffolk University in Boston, MA, I slightly changed my focus from designing to being the liaison between client and designer. I moved to New York, NY to work as a freelance Account Manager for a marketing agency, called Voltage Inc., where I defined and implemented integrated marketing programs for the world's largest research-based pharmaceutical company, Pfizer, Inc.
In 2004, I continued my passion for Marketing and pursued a Master’s Degree in Integrated Marketing Communication at Suffolk University in Boston, MA.
Shortly after graduating, I was employed by PUMA North America, one of the world’s leading sportlifestyle companies that designs and develops footwear, apparel and accessories. I managed the brand’s Creative Services department and oversaw the development of creative assets for retail, wholesale, events, online, and in-store promotions.
In July 2010, I followed the sun and relocated from the East coast to the West coast and settled in Los Angeles, CA, to work as a freelance graphic designer for global brands across a variety of industries, designing logos, brochures, look books, catalogs, flyers, business cards, letterheads, sell sheets, ads, PowerPoints, billboards, packaging, T-shirts, online banners... You name it!
