Hello—I’m a multidisciplinary designer from Germany and 24 years old. Minimalism—as philosophy and a pathway in design is my obsession.

My research interest is—making the design process more accessible for the transformation of our society.
I believe that design is a critical tool for solving complex problems, improving everyday life and keeping relationships towards people, technology and ecology in mind.
It results from crossing boundaries between digital and analog, fiction and reality, research and practice and most importantly between disciplines.

I studied communication design at Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd next to Stuttgart and at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver. Previously I worked at Bootschaft – Crew für Gestaltung in Ulm, Germany and Tangible Interaction in Vancouver, Canad. In-between times I support Arthelps.

I am now freelancing and looking for new opportunities.
Feel free to get in touch and say hello. :-)
