Let me introduce myself

I grew up in Munich and moved to Berlin after highschool to study Design.
My main interest has always been in the interaction we have with technology –
how to get the human will into the machine.

After work I read a lot or built things with my hands, like furniture or clothing.
In 2019 I designed a Covid-Visor and helped set up a production-line for the Red Cross, we also briefly supplied an intensive-care unit of Charité Berlin.
