I am an entrepreneur, creative and consultant in the digital communication business with a deep and long-term (+15 years) experience in managing distributed web development project teams over several locations. I have been working for clients across europe and the US, on site and also remote – i.e. for Audi, BMW, Bosch, European Patent Agency, Gruner + Jahr, LBS Bayern, L'Oreál Paris, Microsoft, Red Bull, ZDF and many more.

As founder and former shareholder of two design and web developement agencies I am used to keep track of our clients success and relationship as well as team harmony; to negotiate with all stakeholders on the scoping and pricing to deliver the best results possible was always essential. As a designer, I am also used to keep a strong eye on detail.

Currently I am responsible for interaction design at the Creative Solutions Department at Condé Nast Germany.
I love to work with new tools and techniques to explore ideas and possibilities in media and communications.
