Alex was born and raised in Hamburg, Germany. He was pretty young when he watched "Beatstreet",
but he immediately got addicted to graffiti and street art. That virus was also the reason that he wasn't
only painting on paper and walls but also started to design Posters and T-Shirts.

In 2004 Alex started to study Communication Design at the Design Factory International in Hamburg.
During this time he put his focus more and more into innovative and creative advertising.
He left the Design Factory with honors and was the most successful student at the German
Art Director's Club in 2007.

After completing his study in 2007 he started at Philipp und Keuntje in Hamburg, where he was responsible
for the worldwide communication of Audi, Lamborghini, the German Yellow Pages and Tetra Pak.

In 2010 Alex moved on to Jung von Matt, Germanys best ranked agency. At Jung von Matt/Fleet the agency's international hot spot, Alex is working on brands like DER SPIEGEL, GE, Mercedes-Benz, Sixt, WWF and Zalando.

Alex was awarded with numerous of awards including Cannes Lions, a Grand Clio, a Grand Prix at the
German Art Director's Club and many more.
