Hi, I am Thomas, a Creative Copywriter based in Hamburg. I love to work on site but also remotely.
I studied Advertising-Design at the HAWK-Hildesheim (University of applied sciences and art), where I focused on Photography and Advertising.
Reading the book Die Mörderfackel, which talks about Germanys best Copywriters, was a decisive moment that made me want to become a Copywriter myself.
So I did a Copytest and jumped into an internship right before my exam at DDB Berlin, where I learned under the guidance of great mentors like Sebastian Kainz and Marian Goetz (still grateful for both of them).
After my exam I worked in Hannover but missed the creative vibes and opportunities, so I moved to Hamburg and started at Scholz & Friends Hamburg where I got thrown straight into the team that was about to pitch for Opel – which was a perfect start so to say.
For two years I enjoyed creating with the team at S&F, then I switched to Grabarz & Partner where I was lucky to be in the Volkswagen International Team for another three years.
After that I became a Freelance Creative, traveled a lot, working remotely and started my brand GET WET SOON, which is all about Surfing, Spirituality and Creativity.
I am happy to have been able to integrate these 3 pillars into my lifestyle as a Creative Copywriter, Author, Coach and Yogateacher, therefore also grateful for all the amazing Agencies, who support this New Work Approach.
Besides writing and thinking about ideas I also like to talk – as a Podcaster with inspiring people and maybe soon with you – about an upcoming inspiring project?
