My story

While looking for an internship, I came across Optiweb, which was still at the beginning of its path. I wanted to upgrade my skills and knowledge, which is why I was more than happy to stay at Optiweb even after the internship.
That’s what led me to my first job immediately after finishing my Multimedia Communications studies.

What are some of your favourite things?

There are a lot of things I like to do. But my ultimate favourite ones are design, airbrush paintings and climbing.

What excites you most about design?

What upsets you the most in your work?

I think this website says it all: How design go to hell

What was the first thing you bought with your own money?

The first thing I bought was a Guns N’ Roses CD. Over time, I bought all of their albums but they’re now lying forgotten somewhere in the closet.
