What are your hobbies? First of all I like to clichedly say - I turned my hobby into my profession. I love to draw, to take pictures, to create visuals and be creative - to analyse people and develop respective marketing strategies. To intellectually position a brand and lead it - everything happend coincidentally because I initially wanted to become a chef or hotel professional. But back to my hobbies:
I love music, I play the drums, drum instruments, guitar and bass. A little bit of keyboarding. I do like beatboxing, I am only a layman but it is great fun.
Basketball, Boxing are further two passions of mine.
And I am a "Season hobbyist” - because I got a lot of hobbies which come and go. Now and then I play tennis all summer long, then the next summer I love minigolf and the summer after I like going for a walk. Some things just get me hocked and I stick to it - others where just nice to know.

How did you join alugha? Well, yes, simply said: It was love at first sight. I were allowed to get to know Bernd Korz on a joined trip to Southafrica in 2011. It simply worked straight away and since then we have experienced quite a lot together. Realised a lot of projects and helped each other over and over again. It became a great friendship. .
I can remember as if it was yesterday, when Bernd visited me on a hot summer day and told me about his genius idea of alugha (at that time it did not have a name). This was my entry into alugha and I started with the normal support - and look now, alugha grew and right now there are 10 of us. .
What’s your area of responsibility within alugh? Right now I am CCO, Creative Director, Art Director, Media-Designer, Photographer and movie maker at the same time. Besides the delivery of ideas and design the visuals, I style the GmbH and its appearance. In addition to that, I support our developers to perfect the usability of our product. But this is nearly not required with such a perfect developing division and team.
How would you describe your work flow? Step by step and always think as much steps ahead as possible to reach the best for alugha as start-up.
What do you like about alugha? Alugha is young, innovative and has a smashing team. Looking at it as a whole it’s the most wicked thing I know. Alugha is an asset for the internet and for Mannheim as innovative city. For me, alugha is also Bernd Korz and he is a big part of mine since a few years. Working with him is an enrichment and always a pleasure.
Where do you see alugha in 2 years? I think alugha will be bought in one or two years and there will be great offers coming up.
