About Me

Since my studies in communication design I have been working for several multi-national agencies and clients in Germany, India, Malaysia, Egypt and Switzerland.

In 2008 me and my long-time business partner Sagar Ghoting started our own design office Kurian Ghoting in Cairo focussing on projects with sustainable value and social impact.

Today I am based back in my hometown Cologne, considering myself as an independent designer and cultural activist.

Besides my commercial work I run Masala Movement e.V. a non-profit organisation for intercultural art initiatives.
