After having lived and interned in Cologne, Ohio, Brussels and Eindhoven I moved to Lausanne in 2011 to study Industrial Design at ecal. In 2014 I moved back to Germany pursuing further studies under close mentorship of Prof. Carola Zwick at the Weißensee Academy of Art Berlin, where I obtained my BA degree in 2017. After working half a year as a Designer of LED lighting systems, I received a 12-months-scholarship from DesignFarmBerlin that led to Co- founding WINT Design Lab in 2019 together with Robin Hoske and Felix Rasehorn. In spring 2021 I received my Master’s Degree and ventured back into the open by returning to independent freelance work, which allows me to maintain a nomadic lifestyle, following my evolving interests in other cultures, to learn a new language, extend my skills, find new inspirations. Having grown a Europe- wide network of Designers and Creatives over the years, I regularly enjoy seeking opportunites to team up with some of the most talented people I know and create the most suitable project teams for my clients.
My main focus and interest as a Designer lie on helping large and small companies to foray into new horizons and create product or business innovations that they might have not even considered possible before. I love the moment when companies discover the value and impact of Design - not only on their present offerings but also strategic business decisions and pathways into their own future and survival as a relevant player in ever more complex conditions.
I particulary enjoy the rewarding challenges of Research- based Design Consultancy and the fast-paced execution of innovative Products, Case Studies or Application Scenarios in both the analog and digital realm - based on promising emerging technologies, as well as new and sustainable manufacturing or material developments.
