Born and raised in downtown Vienna, Austria, I escaped the city in 2008 to study in the western most state of Austria called Vorarlberg, near Switzerland and Germany. My first experience living in the United States was as an exchange student at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 2010. Following the completion of my Master’s degree in Vorarlberg in 2013, I moved to Chicago for a year to work at Leviathan. In June of 2015, I returned to Vienna to freelance while finalizing my permanent residency in the United States. From July 2016 through April 2018 I worked for Method Studios. Since April 2018 I am freelancing for North American clients and in 2019, I founded LIFTOFF LLC. Please feel free to reach out.
