About me

Here some infos about me, my skills and my career as designer


I started back in 1986 producing demos and intros, which eventually evolved into full fletched game productions for the Commodore 64 and Amiga. Then in 1988 I worked as an independent artist and game designer under our label X-ample. Following I studied fine arts at the IBKK for 3 years. 1997 I became partner and lead artist of X-ample Architectures (Büttner GmbH). In 2000 I was trained on the Vicon motion capture system and worked as an art director at Nikoworld in Hamburg. Since 2002 I am a freelance artist and was co-founder of Glare Studios in 2006. Since 2007 I am a member & designer of the demogroup farbrausch. 2010 co-founder of Glare Technologies. 2013 co-founder and shareholder of Glare Productions GmbH.
