Everything changed when I said, “F*ck it, I’m moving to Scotland!”.
Let’s start from the beginning: I was born in St. Louis, Missouri (that’s in the States) to Petra & Volker (very German parents). Luckily for me that meant I grew up bilingually and I have citizenship to both countries. Guess that’s neat, huh? With two scientists for parents it was decided that I become another Dr. Nowotny. But even as a child I gravitated to the finger paints. It became clear that I liked to create. But it was in high school, when I got the magical Creative Suite 2, that my parents gave up on my scientific ventures.
But how did I get here (Scotland I mean)? After completing my Bachelors in Germanic Languages & Literatures at Washington University in St. Louis, (I also minored in in art and anthropology) I thought well this isn't quite right. So I had a think and came up with a simple equation: PEOPLE + ART = ADVERTISING. After that I found my masters course in Creative Advertising at Edinburgh Napier University. While working on my dissertation I began working as a digital designer. Well that brings you up to now. If there is anything else, feel free to get in touch.
