“Ich bin ein Berliner”, still, I have spent quit a few years of my life in the Netherlands. The first five I studied typography and communication design at the KABK Royal Academy, the Hague. Then, after earning my degree I worked for Petr van Blokland for seven years, where I drew lots of letters and learned more Python. For more than ten years I'm back in my hometown, working as a full-time type person. Next to my work at supertype, like Jürgen Huber, I’m teaching typography to communication design students at the HTW University, Berlin.
