job: Production, Event, and Tour Manager
working on: Since 2005 I’ve been working as a professional production- and tour manager for various companies. From the beginning my work was focused mainly on rock´n´roll shows for the Berlin based promoter Trinity Music. Over the years I did nearly all kinds of different production work from concerts, sport events to exhibitions and business events. Since 2007 I’ve been one of the production manager for the Citadel Music Festival in Berlin. From 2009–2011 I was also responsible for the local production for the „Telekom Extreme Playgrounds“ @ Velodrom/ Berlin. In 2010 and 2011 one of the biggest experiences was to supervise the Popkomm showcase festival which included up to 7 venues and more than 80 artists in 2 days. Next projects will for example include the World Economic Forum 2013 in Davos.
favourite artist(s): Too many to name them all. But to mention a few of my all-time favs: Social Distortion, Wolfbrigade, The Generators, Depeche Mode, Beastie Boys....
But I always look out for all kinds of new and good music.
first gig: One of my first shows I ever visited was Depeche Mode in 1993 at the „Songs of Faith & Devotion“ Tour.
highlight(s) of the last year: Absolutely to work with Henry Rollins was one of the best experiences ever. And as every year to work at the Citadel Music Festival with different artist such as Soundgarden, Snow Patrol, Alanis Morrisette etc.....
musical hero: HENRY ROLLINS!!!
listening to: music ;)
