Curriculum Vitae / Resumé

Technial Designer and Business Developer by trade. Co-founder & CEO of Frogsong Studios where I have been working since 2014.

Why do I make games?

My life has been all about video games since sometime around 12 years of age, starting out with modding in StarCraft 1 and WarCraft 3 as well as making pen-and-paper roleplaying game homebrews. The allure of creating worlds and how you can interact with them has always caught my imagination. To me the most exciting thing in game development is figuring out new ways to experience games – I have a sweettooth for novel game mechanics and never seen before universes.

Who am I outside of games?

I am a very social person and my friends and family mean the world to me. When it comes to my interests I’m a very curious person who’s always on the lookout for the next weird factoid either listening to a niche podcast or visiting an oddly specific museum. Aside of curiosity I have ha deep-rooted longing for the great outdoors: whether it’s hiking, camping, fly-fishing, picking mushroom or berries – I love it all!

Which are my favorite games?
I have tried doing different player architype tests but I’m never happy with the results. I’m definitely a part of the hardcore crowd but not locked in by genre. Here are some of my wide-spread favorites of all time:

Video games: Dota 2, Binding of Isaac, Minecraft, Slay the Spire, Half-life series, StarCraft & Warcraft series, Alien: Isolation, SOMA, PUBG, Heroes of Might & Magic-series, Quake & Doom-series, Baldur’s Gate 2, ES: Morrowind, Hotline Miami, Inside, Vampire: the Masquerade, Tetris Effect

Board- & Card games: Magic the Gathering, Everdell, Rune Wars, Dominion, Root, Terraforming Mars, Catan, Star Realms

Roleplaying games: Svavelvinter, Trudvang, Vampire: the Masquerade

Please don’t ask me how many hours I have in Dota 2 and don’t be a stranger!

Hope to hear from you!
