As a highly experienced creative in brand strategy, storytelling, digital, and design, I’ve built and led top agency teams for 15+ years. My specialty is creating insight-driven solutions that transform brands into Love Brands.

My reel

I’m a creative, a design and digital enthusiast, film fan and Unit Lead Creative at TLGG, Berlin. I am also a clairvoyant. Because I knew you were wondering if I was French. No, I am not. I am a German Italian with a French name. C’est tout. ;-)

I create insight-driven and user-centric solutions that transform brands into Love Brands. I develop relevant and meaningful added value that makes people’s everyday lives easier, more efficient and more cheerful. I burn for ideas that are not only useful, but also innovative, perfectly handcrafted and surprising. That’s why I give it my all. With blood, sweat and tears of laughter. Because if the work is fun, the end product also brings joy.

For more than 15 years I’ve been building teams and shaping Germany’s most renowned agencies such as BBDO, Jung von Matt and Scholz & Friends. As a member of the ADC Germany, ADC Europe and D&AD I mentor and teach young creatives at academies, agencies and universities.

My work has won over 190 awards worldwide for efficiency and creative excellence at festivals such as Cannes Lions, Clio Awards, the One Show, D&AD and Art Directors Club for clients including Mercedes-Benz, Nike and o2. Throughout my career I have judged at numerous award shows including the Art Directors Club, the German Advertising Film Award and the New York Festivals.
