… exploring nature and neighbourhoods—and wearing caps all the time.

My early career started back in school by designing the school’s newspaper and coding my own content management system. I do not really like working in front of a screen for a living—though I love my job—that’s among other things why I started studying Integrated Design at KISD. After four five six years of studying my average daily screen time did not increase that much, but after all, I can live with that, though I am always happy to have some time away from the monitor.

I like to explore new things, but when it’s about food or movies I usually prefer the things I know. Sometimes I play some random campfire songs on the guitar. I love sports, but tend to watch more than actually doing it myself, if nobody is forcing me to do otherwise.

I’m a huge fan of good drinks—coffee, juice or beer is totally fine—, dogs, Werder Bremen and Dieter Rams. Oh, and my last name is pronounced with a short first syllable.
