Things I
do for fun

In 2011, after my A-Levels and years of messing around with Adobe Photoshop, I started an apprenticeship in a neat web agency called Communiacs, where my passion for digital design really took off. During this time, alongside two friends, we hit the 2nd place at the Aumüller Berufsschulpreis which involved creating a corporate identity for a fictive travel agency. Additionally, after 3 years, I finished with the best final exam in my district.

In 2014, i started studying at the University of Applied Sciences, Upper Austria (Campus Hagenberg). I'll be done next summer.

I know my way around my design tools of choice (Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign and Sketch) pretty well. I have basic knowledge in coding (Java, PHP) and scripting (JavaScript, jQuery) languages and love to handle the frontend side of things (HMTL, CSS/SASS, various grid systems and frameworks). I like to make things look great in Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Premiere. I can also handle rudimentary Adobe After Effects tasks and know the basics of Autodesk Maya. Apple Logic is pretty fun. Also, I'm fully enclosed in the Apple Mac OS & iOS environment.

When I'm not working (which happens occasionally), I like to DJ or taking out my Alpha 7R into the wild.
