Personal details: I started developing games because » I could...I was a toy designer and always enjoyed the game halls at the toy fair. I figured that I might be able to do this too, and it worked :-) My first invented game was » Quameleon for Albisbrunn Spielwaren, an abstract game, first real board game was Capt'n Clever by Zoch My most successful game so far has been » Die Erbsenprinzessin (Princess and the pea) by Haba In developing games, I am driven and stimulated by » Sheer joy! I have more inspiration than time. My ideas come from » Everywhere. Books, the kids, office suplies, hardware stores, nature, anywhere! I am particularly proud of » the rewards I received for Kissenschlacht (Amigo) end being on the Empfehlungslist for Kinderspiel des Jahres in 2012 with Zirkus Stapelix by Kosmos. I love the way this game looks! Teamwork done with other designers » I am currently working together with Anja Dreier Brückner, but this is so new, we haven't published anything together yet. Recently, I especially enjoyed playing the game » Silly card games with the kids, my own prototypes (I had to) and as always Black Vienna! Besides games, my other interests are » My two lovely kids! And being outside, biking, skating, hiking! And reading I am looking forward to » Every new day. I thoroughly enjoy my life!
