About me & my work:

After working for nearly 20 years in various positions in the design industry both in the US (for Method) and Germany (for Metadesign) I've committed myself to teaching about 10 years ago. I started out as an adjunct professor at the Media Systems Design program in h_da Darmstadt, Germany and now teach at Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule in Berlin, Germany since 2007. At BTK I am currently heading the BA program in Interaction Design as well as the recently opened MA in Media Spaces. As Academic Director I am also member of the leadership team and responsible for the quality of the teaching staff, the programs' content and strategic development as well as a lot of administrative questions which accumulate every day. Privately, I've recently rediscovered my love for photography as a very expressive and emotional media which is quite in contrast to the rather analytical approach I have to follow in may daily business.
