About me

Hey, it’s Alex!

I am currently contributing my part in making North-Rhine Westphalia the number one region for the German games industry.

Key Facts

Degree in marketing communication, certified leadership skills and a background as an indie game developer, in games business and sales. Experienced in event- and project-management. Organizing a local game developer meetup. Fascinated by the potential of entrepreneurship in the games industry. Also hobby drone pilot and a blissful digital creative.


In my spare time, I am running gamedevs.nrw and am organizing our monthly game development meetups. Our community has more than one thousand members on meetup.com

I am particular proud of this little passion project of mine.

Thought Leader

As one of NRW’s games thought leaders, I am an informed opinion leader and one of the go-to people in the field of cultivating the region’s games industry. I am a trusted source to move and inspire people with innovative ideas on how to leverage their creative potential in order to break into the (indie) game development scene. German games business media outlet GamesWirtschaft chose me as one of their experts for their 2019 industry forecast.
