Take your time to learn and adapt but don't underestimate the basics.

I learned to see media, especially games in an array of different perspectives.

For me Game Design is the perfect combination of creative freedom, technical possibilities
and a wide spectrum of talented people to work with.

As our current circumstances allow us to do: online and without any pants on.
