Summary

I am a value–driven and versatile creative consultant with 8+ years of experience in integrated marketing communications and user experience design, preferably in the media, digital marketing and IT industry. Currently working as a strategy and business consultant at 21TORR, where I oversee a broad range of functions including user experience design, design thinking, innovation projects, marketing communications, creative consulting, branding, agile project management and user interface design across the development of digital products for web, mobile and print.

Prior, I managed the marketing and creative department as a Creative Director and Head of Marketing & Design for various clients, startups and brands in the D-A-CH region, USA and Finland. Awards and nominations include IF Communication Design Award, German Design Award, Enterprise Mobility Award, IT-Innovationspreis and various web awards.

I drive for creative excellence for clients and dedicated teams. With my strong business, design and technical background I am able to consider both user and business requirements, as well as technical demands in my design process and to support developers and consult clients.

I studied in Germany, Singapore and Canada, and earned an MBA in International Management from ESB Business School Reutlingen University, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Advertising and Marketing Communications from Stuttgart Media University, where I was i.e. a Baden-Wurttemberg Foundation Scholar, and a technical diploma in Digital Media Design. Passionate about technology, creativity, and business management, I also obtained a Service Design Thinker certiciate in Service Design and Visual Design Thinking from Experience Design Institute Cologne.
