picture of me

Hi, I'm Max.

I'm a Germany-based entrepreneur with more than a decade of professional experience in the 3D graphics industry. On this website, I am collecting personal insights, articles, and resources that I have created or collected within the past few years. The topics cover mostly 3D graphics topics, and a few smaller free-time projects. I intend to share more of my entrepreneurial experiences here as well.

Stay tuned, and enjoy your stay!

More About Me

Since 2018, I am CEO, Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder of DGG, the startup that creates RapidCompact. In the past 5+ years, I have guided the company through three successful funding rounds, scaling to seven-figure annual revenue.

Before founding my own company, I worked on industry projects and in applied research. I received my engineering PhD with honors from TU Darmstadt, under the supervision of Dieter W. Fellner, on the topic of Automatic Optimization of 3D Mesh Data for Real-Time Online Presentation. In 2019, it was awarded with the Hugo Geiger Prize of the Fraunhofer Society (1st place). During my research work, I also spent 6 months at Alla Sheffer's Digital Geometry Processing Group at UBC (Vancouver, BC, Canada), and another half year at Siemens Corporate Research (Princeton, NY, USA).
