Curriculum Vitae


I have more than 16 years of professional experience in Public Relations and Communications. This background helps me to quickly create effective flows and design user friendly solutions as a UX and Service Designer. For me communication and design are very closely related – even though methods and tools are somewhat different. I passed all my three semesters at the "Mobile Creative Programme 2015" at Hyper Island with a "Distinction degree".

At Hyper Island I had the opportunity to deepen my professional skills in:

- Design thinking
- User Experience and Service design
- Facilitating processes that leads to digital transformation of organisations and implementation of effective communication solutions.
