I am currently working as a Head of Studio for Berlin based Wooga (world of gaming).
Prior to Wooga, i worked as a designer, creative director and project manager 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 the Xing or Linkedin profile of me for a complete overview.
I am releasing an album with tracks reaching from dub to latin and ska under the alias mabafu from time to time because this is another passion i have.
