About Me

I am a UX engineer with over a decade of experience in software design, and I love well-crafted design systems and component libraries.

I enjoy having a family, being resourceful, and living in the vivid city of Berlin. Seeing myself also as a creative coder, I strongly believe that good design already starts with well-written source code and that the best user experience results from the combination of both. My former colleagues would probably say, that I am a team player and an eager learner.

Bachelor of Arts in Interface Design University of Applied Science Potsdam

August 2007 – May 2014

During my years at the FH Potsdam, I took classes in human-computer interaction, usability, designing with code, and physical computing. But also in more classical topics like typography, typeface design, art, and design theory. Very early, I have chosen coding as my favorite tool to create and design. Mostly with the Java-based library Processing, later with JavaScript.
