I was born and raised in Germany in a family of foundry engineers,
where early on I discovered my interest for technical products, the genius behind them, their material, texture and function.
I discovered that these same products - surrounding us in oureveryday life - influence us in the way we think, speak and act. That is when I realised that I wanted to study design.
I moved to the UK and commenced my Bachelor of Arts in Product Design at Central Saint Martins (UAL). Here I discovered my passion for three-dimensionality and creating design solutions that embody values beyond their aesthetics. To refine my strategic design and innovation skills I then commenced my Double Master's Degree in Innovation Design Engineering at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London.
I am a Foresight Designer and Strategist. My key incentive is to innovate through experimental and speculative design approaches, creating completely new narratives and experiences.
I aspire to discover new realms, scenarios, product typologies and solutions that will create value and delight for contemporary and future society.
