I am an interdisciplinary designer with an artistic approach, technological interest and cultural empathy. My work deals with new media technologies in two different ways: On the one hand I use the possibilites of Digital Media as a new way of playful, artistic expression while on the other hand I investigate the implications of a transforming digitalized and globalized world through critical research and analysis.

For my Bachelor degree I studied Integrated Design at the University of the Arts in Bremen with an exchange semester in the Interaction Design master course at the IUAV in Venice. During my studies I did internships at Projection Mapping studio Urbanscreen and spatial design company dreiform. Afterwards I founded the collective for Audio-Visual Art Xenorama together with some friends. After finishing my Bachelor Project I worked as Multimedia Centre Coordinator at the BAT Centre in Durban, South Africa for one year as part of an cultural, social exchange.

Currently I am studying in the Master of Digital Media at the HfK Bremen, work as Art Director at Xenorama and organise cultural events with refugees a the platform for intercultural exchange MEET YOUR NEIGHBOURS.
