How it all started

When I studied Mechanical Engineering at RWTH Aachen in the midst 90ies, I was one of the few students already having their own website. I was fascinated by mathematics and technology at that time. Then the internet came up, my interest in Linux and Perl, I programmed my first car configurator (on the console without any visual output, folks) and I wanted to dive into that new digital world even further.

My curious mind and my goal to learn something new every day, led me to my first job at Avinci, an IT consultancy. As I had not much of a digital experience, I was asked "Do you rather want to be a developer or a concepter?". I decided to go for development at that time. It was fascinating to be able to solve a task by myself and see the result immediately. This is how I wrote my first analysis tool for the Packstation of Deutsche Post AG in Bonn and what got me into the Frontend Development team of that project. 

Just shortly after that I realized that my fascination for technology was not enough to be a really great developer. I didn`t want to go that deep into all these technical details, I wanted to follow my other big passion and use my technical knowledge to create new things, create future-proof applications and make existing platforms even better. 

Who I am today

Black Belt User Experience Unicorn - Chief User Centred Design Champion - Lead Embodied Interactions Rock Star - Lead User Interface Hero - call me what you want

I speak the language of technical people but what I love even more than technology is using future trends and developments to create something new and to add a piece of myself to each job I take.

I always set high demands to myself and my work. "Learning by doing" is something I have been following since the 90ies. I hate routines and fixed processes. I like to find new paths and I love having enough free space to do so. I like working in a team but I also love to get away from office buildings some days of the week to get new inspiration. I am a sprinter, more than an endurance runner. I believe there is a solution to any challenge and I ask myself every day "What`s next?".

Being a freelance digital strategist and conceptioner, allows me to combine the things I love most: analysis, creativity, design and empathy.
