Background

Summary

As a UX designer I gained in the last years experience introducing design processes into companies and leading big redesign projects, working with internal colleagues and external partners. 

I also have experience communicating the value of design and explaining design to others, proved of that is my +5 years of experience leading the Interaction Design Association in Munich, a non-profit organizing workshops for designers. In addition to that, I teach at the Hochschule München, taking my students through a practical course in which they work on a typical design process.
