About Me

Hello and welcome!

I have been working as a storyboard-illustrator for advertising and film for about 20 years now. My strengths are speed, realiability, great communication skills and being uncomplicated to work with. At least that what my clients say about me and that’s what I strive for.
My specialties are people, faces, hair, facial expressions, food, cars, beauty and the ever reoccuring 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 & white to detailed color storyboards with lighting moods.
On top of my long experience, I also have a usefull 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 university years did not only refine drawing skills, but also gave me important theoretical knowledge in directing and storytelling.

Besides just storyboards, I offer full service animatics, with sound, animation, speakers and effects.

I have worked with most big brands. Here are some: BMW, Mercedes, Coca-Cola, Toyota, Nivea, Opel, Schwartzkopf, Scania, Loreal, Ferrero.
Some European agencies I have worked with: DDB, JvM, Saatchi, FCB, TBWA, Ogilvy, BBDO and F&B.
My main markets are London, Hamburg, München, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Oslo, Stockholm, Göteborg, Malmö and Copenhagen.

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