I started inventing board games as a kid, handicrafting giant boards with hundreds of paper counters. No wonder I became a vivid collector of all forms of games be it board games, tabletop games, cosims, role playing games, trading card games or whatever years later. I am a proud owner of a quite big, but still not complete Avalon Hill collection (and some hundred of other games too).

I organized board game conventions with my gaming club in Nuremberg in late 80s / early 90s and at this time I decided to present an own board game called Jihad!. The first run was 20 pieces with a paper board and cards, as well as painted condensers as playing pieces. It was sold out in a few minutes and it din't take a long time before I had the chance to present my next game to a small game publisher, starting my career as a game designer. I am actually an Essen trade fair veteran and I have exhibited there for more than 10 times. I owned game shops and was a wholesaler for various British and US games and historical miniatures. When my personal business changed, also the focus of my game designs changed to a more serious approach. This lead to a job as a faculty assistant for game design at a private school in Northern Germany and speaking on conferences about Silver Gaming and game related research.

Today I am working on games - both online or classic (board/card) - for pure fun, but also on Serious Games and Game Based Learning. With Proxy Wars I am trying to mix board games with the world of web 2.0 now.
