I craft visual narratives with a unique blend of expertise, attention to detail and interdisciplinary knowledge. The skills I’ve developed allow me to work in branding, print and UX / UI design, as well as directing designers in these fields. I do my best work when I can dive into complex topics in the fields of art, culture and education to find ways of making them accessible through visual communication.

I’m an art director + communication designer based in Germany with over eight years of experience in design studios and creative agencies.
