About me


Hans was born in 1976 and grew up in Germany as one of four children. He has Finnish family background on his mother’s side. Computer science, computer graphics and music were important topics for Hans since his early teens. He chose that music would become his hobby and computer science his profession where computer graphics is something in between.  After an apprenticeship as a technical assistant in computer science Hans graduated from high school and then studied computer science at the University of Applied Sciences in Bremen. After his studies Hans founded Anima Entertainment GmbH together with Nicolas Born and Tobias Weber. A computer graphics and game development studio.
