“In addition to my work for a large high-tech company where I’m mainly concerned with software, the need to shape my creativity became more and more apparent. It actually started with another hobby of mine, old typewriters.
I saw, tinkering with those old mechanical devices, in the many small details and ingenious parts, possibilities to combine them in a different way into something organic.
The endless search for the perfect shape and experimenting with the ingenious parts gives me enormous peace of mind and offers me the opportunity to combine my love for nature and technology and express my ideas, inspiration and emotions.”
