born in 1976. His stories and novels examine contemporary work spheres and individual resistance against conformity phenomena. In essayistic form, he analyzed the increasingly popular corporate instrumentalization of narrative techniques. The inaugural text of his prose cycle »Life and Services« retells the digitization of an executed prisoner as the birth of a quasi-immortal avatar, while the recent novelistic entry »Der Weg aller Wellen« (2019; tr: The Way of all Waves) is set in Silicon Valley.
