Vice President New Games

I am working as Vice President New Games for Berlin based Wooga where i started 2009 as a Product Lead having released genre defining hit games like Pearl’s Peril and June’s Journey, being responsible for the new product pipeline. My passion is not limited to the gaming industry though. I love building up teams and creating successful digital products in general. Prior to Wooga, i worked as a creative director, designer and producer for various developers of award winning mobile content starting my career as a level designer for Game Boy Color in 2000. I studied at the Bauhaus University Weimar (Media Art & Design).

Please go to my Linkedin profile for a complete overview.

I have a deep passion for producing music. New albums are realesed every few years with tracks reaching from dub to latin and ska under the alias mabafu depending on my time and life schedule. I am spending more time right now though on creating an indie game called Goldspace.
