Just a selection of passion and fun!
I've been passionate about my industry since my first job in '97. I've only worked on projects I believe in and used my expertise. I'm committed to continuing this trend and staying true to my values.
Germany's biggest holiday resort is family-operated and has continuously changed since it opened in 1972. Generations of families have been on vacation around the castle of Dankern in one of more than 800-holiday homes.
Back in 2007, I started as a spokesperson for Schloss Dankern.
Since 2021, I have supported the third owner's generation in developing new ideas for the future growth of the amusement park, holiday resort, and everything connected.
Karls, probably the most unusual theme park company in the world, operates 2023 five amusement parks, which are related to a strawberry farmer theming.
In 2016, Robert Dahl, the owner of Karls, commissioned me to help develop their first major attraction near Berlin - a roller coaster. As the project manager of this multi-million Euro investment, I assisted from the initial idea to the opening in April 2018, bringing K2 to life: a fully themed roller coaster with a dark ride section that explains the process of making potato chips. It may seem crazy, but it's part of Karls' success story.
In 2022, I have been appointed as a brand ambassador for Karls.
The Westfield Centro Shopping Center in Oberhausen, Germany has successfully integrated leisure elements into its shopping experience. I have been assisting the new owner of Germany's largest shopping center since 2016 to introduce new leisure attractions and find a new operator for their 8-hectare outdoor amusement park. Thanks to my network, we were able to bring in a Legoland Discovery Center and implement the Expo Hall, which has hosted a Smurf exhibition and now houses the House of Magic by the Ehrlich Brothers magicians. Additionally, my assistance led to finding a new operator for the amusement park.
I have been a video and photo producer for amusement and water parks, as well as ride suppliers since 2000. I am also the founder of movemotions productions. Our work takes us all over the world, from China and Brunei to Vietnam, Sweden, Sicily, the USA, and Mexico. We specialize in capturing the emotions of excited guests and riders in promotional videos and photos.
A trackless dark ride system from ETF at the Munich-based film studio needed to make room for a new attraction at the end of the season 2020. The tourist attraction contacted me to find a new owner for that ride system within a very short time period. I was able to find a buyer within a few months. The ride reopened as Drachen Magic at Magic Park Verden in Germany.
