about me

Born in 1989. Grown up in times of Tamagotchi, Spice Girls and Sega Mega Drive. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media Design (2010) and a Master of Arts in Game Design (2013). I worked as a Game Production Assistant and as a Creative Director. Since late 2015 I am a freelance Designer and Artist in Munich.

I can describe myself as a friendly, creative and detail-oriented person. I enjoy minimalism, avant-garde fashion, reading, exploring scientific/tech innovations and modern art. In spare time I like writing stories, dancing and traveling.

Aesthetic experience, user-centered design, efficient user journeys, engaging emotions, error tolerant environment, effective use of the systems, visual refinement or development of a brand, design thinking, defining next-generation concepts – are part of my expertise.

I apply problem solving methods on design tasks and on creation of experiences. Thinking not just out of the box but also from the user point of view. Practical, simple and satisfying design.

Currently I work on projects in the following areas: Visual Design, UI/ UX and branding.
