Before starting the transition into UX design, I have worked as a designer and art director in design agencies and as a freelancer for 10+ years. I have gained experience in diverse areas in graphic design and beyond, pursued side businesses to combine all my passions and skills in one place.
With UX design, I finally find myself in the right place. All the experiences and skills I have gained become my unique power in starting a UX career. I am skilled in understanding abstract concepts and visualizing information. I am experienced in balancing business and user needs. I value being an empathic UX designer and listener for both the user and the team.
As a lifelong learner and a person with unlimited curiosity in knowledge and people, I love to help organizations and businesses solving the right problem and thriving in the future.

A brief overview of my unique experiences:
Understand & visualize information
Although I had experience in diverse areas in graphic design, understanding and visualizing information is what I am most enthusiastic about. For me, the most fascinating part is understanding the information architecture or even create a new one. It feels meaningful when the information becomes more accessible and understandable to people.
Design experience for people
From 2012 to 2017 I was organizer and co-founder of one of the best design fairs in Hamburg with thousands of visitors per day. I have worked with hundreds of exhibitors, challenged myself with running an event business, and gained deep experience in creating fluent digital, spatial, and sensational experiences for visitors.
Balancing the needs
COHE started as a side project in 2014 because I was always fascinated by industrial design. I was fortunate to get many press releases in design and lifestyle magazines through the time of COHE. More importantly, I gained precious experience as a business owner in balancing the customer's and the business's needs, and why empathy is crucial in product design.
