I am Kai! Born and raised near Hildesheim in Germany. I love video games and I love information technology. During my time in school, I did video game journalism at Station54 Community Management GmbH. Station54 was a contractor to Electronic Arts and provided me first steps into the video game industry.

After school, I decided to study Business Information Technology for the Bachelor's degree. I did this study part-time while being contracted by Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG in Wennebostel, Germany (dual study). When I finished my Bachelor study in 2015, I decided to follow up with a Master. So I studied Marketing and Sales Management at the FHDW Hannover.

As I still love video games and as I have the skillset for developing, I set myself the goal to create my very own. As I am also dedicated to new technologies, such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), I decided to create this game for VR usage in Unity! But that’s what I do in my free time. As for my job at Sennheiser, I currently administrate a B2B eCommerce platform, using direct ERP-integration via a software provider. CRM and integration of marketing and sales processes into this platform is an additional field of work.

Besides this, I also do event moderation in my hometown’s cinema, the Thega Filmpalast. Here I do host different formats, such as Ladies Preview, ThegaSneak or special screenings, which are the cinemas approach to celebrate movies and cinemas. For promotional purposes and to reach the audience, I administrate several social media channels.

That’s all about what someone considers to be work. As for relaxing, I like to hike and to do sports. Especially running. Running does combine all my personal traits, goals and preferences: Nature, setting goals (distance and time), building and keeping up durability and team spirit.
