About Me

Hey this is the place where I should tell you who I am and what I do and so on...
Great, you are reading this so you are really interested in me and my life. Therefore I guess i should start at the very beginning. I was born in 1989 on a chilly day in february close to the small city of Bremen in the northern part of Germany.

Just kidding - here is the essential stuff.

My name is Jonas. I am currently enrolled in the Digital Media program at the University of Arts in Bremen collecting experiences in a wide range of design disciplines. Although I think that my best works I have done so far are interactive objects based on a theoretical or fictional background I also made my experiences in film and postproduction, working as a print and screendesigner, producing electronic circuits and writing screen- or microcontroller based software to control them. I would like to say that I have got a passion for making and hacking things by myself especially the ones which do not exist yet in a way I imagine them. Furthermore I enjoy the experience of trying out new ways of creating. I was never afraid of learning something new.

Apart from the technical and digital world I feel the most comfortable riding one of my bikes which is even better in a nice companionship. Furthermore riding the bike is a perfect compensation of another favorite thing of mine which is cooking together with and for other people.
