About me & my work:

I have been loving and living design and innovation my whole career. I moved across a range of disciplines from UX, to system design to be leading design as a strategic innovation instrument. Right now, I am on the mission to map, build and inspire a future we want to live in. As Chief Designer and futurist for SAP's Chief Innovation Office. I craft future outlooks, moonshots, strategies and products, define and run innovation frameworks to find out what’s next for SAP and the future of work. I was named 1 of 100 most innovative minds in Germany by the biggest financial newspaper Handelsblatt in 2017.

I frequently share my passion for the future of humans and work (TEDx, SingularityU Summit, CES, SxSW, Tech Open Air TOA, Ada Lovelace, CeBIT, WeAreDevelopers, Grace Hopper, MLOVE etc.) I build on my international adventures stretching from Poland, Sweden, China to Germany and across companies like SAP, Sony and Huawei, working with consumer electronics, media services and business software. There are probably very few Sci-Fi movies I have not yet seen, there are hundreds of forests I would love to mountain bike in, and miles of coral reefs to dive on. Ask me about anything of the above and you will catch a spark in me eyes and possibly an interesting conversation.
