personalabout me

Hey-Diddly-Ho!

Bild von mir

Born this way…

…in northern Germany in the early 1980s.

1988-1992 newly discovered passion for all things creative in primary school at Grundschule Ihlienworth

1992-2002 high school education at Gymnasium Otterndorf

I gained an advanced technical certificate with Musicology and English as specialised subjects.

Shortly after, I moved to Hamburg and then Bremen to pursue my musical career.

In 2006, I set to embark on a journey to Liverpool, where I ended up staying for more than three years.

Ferry cross the Mersey

In Liverpool, after working in numerous day jobs I first got into Software Quality Assurance by working for a video game company called Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

Killzone 2, Resistance 2, Heavy Rain, inFAMOUS, LittleBigPlanet and various SingStar games are some of the titles I can now proudly list in my professional portfolio.

Homeward bound

In 2010, I returned to Bremen, Germany, in order to begin training as an assistant technical designer (GTA). In 2012, I graduated with sparkling results.

Instead of settling back in with my friends and peers in Germany, I embarked on my second – yet much bigger adventure abroad.

In Dublin’s fair City

In 2013, I started working as a Quality Assurance Tester (German) for Keywords International, a leading video game translation and localisation service provider based in Dublin. I contributed to projects like HarmoKnight for Nintendo 3DS, which I loved by the way, and others like LittleBigPlanet 2 for PS3.

In the same year, after finalising my main project Final Fantasy XIV I broke down my tents in Ireland, scraped up all my hard-earned cash and bought a flight ticket to Australia where I would spend the next year of my life without even having a rough idea how to afford it.

Into the Great Wide Open

In Australia, I eventually found jobs as a gardener, a deckhand, events staff and a kitchen steward in a casino which were all exceptionally well-paid, but that’s a different story, I guess. …And it doesn’t really belong here on my shiny professional profile. But yes, just saying, I can also do these kinds of things. For a lot of money – that goes without saying.

With all that money I went to Asia, which is significantly cheaper than Australia. In Asia, I visited places like Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China and Thailand.

Homeward Bound…

After working on several projects in Hamburg, Madrid and London, I am now looking to relocate back to Germany in order to participate in long-term projects such as Wanna Grow permaculture garden in the Cuxhaven region.
