Work experience:
I have been working as a Digital Creative since 1999 in the advertising industry. I started as an Art Director but discovered my passion for creative concepts, campaign creation, and brand leadership. I have worked in Germany, South Korea, and have work experience in the USA, China, and the Netherlands. My core strengths are team leadership, strategic thinking, digital storytelling, and creative concept development.

Since 2019, I have been working as the Executive Creative Director Digital at DDB Berlin for Volkswagen Europe to “digitalize” their campaigns.
