I’m a designer specialising in innovation and experience with a strong foundation in the material. I’m currently studying MFA Business & Design at Gothenburg University and have an interest in combining a norm-critical mindset with the design process to create people-centred approaches. I previously studied at Konstfack University, The Glasgow School of Art and Nyckelviksskolan.

I was born and raised in Germany, but my curiosity for people and cultures has so far led me to live in three different countries – I speak English, Swedish and German fluently. I love to meet new people with different skills to combine force in collaborations and have experience from working as a freelance designer and workshop leader. I’m a big picture thinker and believe in working with my head, heart and hands.
