About me & my work:

I empower individuals, teams & organizations to create desirable lasting impact.

Before joining IXDS in 2012 I established Fjord's German studio in 2007, grew it to a team of 50 in my role as MD and then took on a Group Director role to build Fjord's global Service Design Academy. Fjord was sold to Accenture in 2013. Prior to this, I led global innovation projects in my product management and user experience roles at Yahoo and Vodafone.

I studied design at the Köln International School of Design and Rhode Island School of Design, and have more than 15 years’ professional experience in designing digital services.

At IXDS we aim to re-invent innovation culture and the role and set-up of design studios. Constantly questioning the way we integrate technology into our lives - while empowering the analog qualities - is another one of my passions.

I love the outdoors, mountaineering & nature and am a certified Ayurveda therapist.
