I'm not taking any new projects right now – I'm currently taking care of coffee smallholders data on a global scale. If you need a DataViz Person, look here.

about me

I'm a Berlin-based designer and technologist focused on Data Visualization and Interaction Design. I graduated at the Interface Design Programme at the University of Applied Sciences, Potsdam and was enrolled in the Interaction Design Programme at Malmö University, Sweden. Currently I work at the interactive unit of ZEIT ONLINE. Previously I did prototype-based research for the Ideation & Prototyping Lab of the Technologiestiftung Berlin and the CityLAB Berlin with open data. I collaborated with: Berkmann Klein Center (at) Harvard, GiZ, Google News Lab, MIT, Deutsches Historisches Museum, Spiegel Online. Fun fact: I'm also a Freestyle Frisbee Vice World Champion!
