About Me

Hello and welcome!

I have been working as a storyboard-illustrator for advertising and film for 15 years now. My strengths are speed, realiability, great communication skills and being unkomplicated to work with. At least that what my clients say and thats what I strive for.
My specialties are people, faces, hair, facial expressions, food, cars and the stereotypical family in the kitchen.
I work on distance as well as in-house. I can offer a wide range of different styles. From rough black and white to detailed color storyboards with lighting moods.
On top of my long experience, I also have a great education. Both my parents were illustrators and they taught me. I have a University degree from Capilano University in Vancouver. It is considered the best animation and drawing education in Canada.
My education did not only refine drawing skills, but also gave me important theoretical knowledge in directing and storytelling.

I also offer full service animatics, with sound, animation, speakers and efffects.

I have worked with most big brands. Here are some: BMW, Mercedes, Coca-Cola, Toyota, Nivea, Opel, Schwartzkopf, Loreal, Ferrero.
Some European agencies I have worked with: DDB, JvM, Saatchi, FCB, TBWA, Ogilvy, BBDO.
Some citys I work regularly for/in: London, Hamburg, München, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Oslo, Stockholm.

I am looking forward to your request and working with you!
