About FWsim

Lukas - Founder & Developer

FWsim was created by Lukas Trötzmüller, out of personal interest in pyrotechnics.

Lukas has a Master's degree in computer science. Besides his work on FWsim, he enjoys playing pipe organ and weightlifting. As a member of Giving What We Can, he donates 10% of his income to effective charities.

Marcus - Effects & Show Design

My name is Marcus Athmer - I’m working on effects design for FWsim as well as strategy & marketing. I also make customized virtual shows for corporate clients and event management companies.

In the first years of my life I was already fascinated by fireworks. Early on I started to plan fireworks and study the industry in depth. In search of a simulation software I came across FWsim many years ago, and have used it ever since. On weekends I work as a DJ at weddings and festivals, and I also use pyrotechnics at some of those events.

I have a bachelor's degree in Business Administration & Management. In addition to working at FWsim, I study marketing management at IU International University.
