If you ask me where a *true* digital native started, I'd say it's the glorious Commodore C64. 320x200-pixel screen, 16 colors, 8-bit CPU. And this is where my digital journey started. It was 1986, I was ten years old and highly addicted to the digital world's blessing of accurate creation and limitless reproduction. With an Amiga 500 I started to produce digital 4-track music and pixel graphics for "demos" and games after school. Today I look back at shocking 30+ years of design, technology, starting new projects and getting things done.
Late 90s I started to study graphic design, moved to Munich, co-founded the internet startup "hybris" and joined the local drum'n'bass scene (7ohm). I opened and closed a streetart onlineshop (subnormals), spent some time experimenting with generative art (the Gonzos), programmed a few live vj projects with good old Flash and Processing and finally ended up with my design studio SNK (schoene neue kinder), a record label (Brave & Dizzy) and two beautiful kids. With SNK and my incubator project co.brick I now focus on supporting companies and startup founders with modern brand, culture and leadership strategy advice.
