What I do

I’m currently freelancing from somewhere around the world. I might be in Romania, Canada or Nicaragua. Who knows.

That's me

Although I'm an introvert I love to explore new things. No matter if it is about learning a new skill or getting to know the diversity on planet earth. I enjoy it when a monotone daily life gets something new and exciting every day. On a normal day I love to design something digital or something in motion. Making a design system work while finding the best solution for a problem is always a challenge I'm up for. If it's a long road to get there I most likely cheer myself up with some chocolate. (Btw I miss german chocolate a lot – and bread, and Mozzarella too)


In general I’m pretty curious. I want to understand connections and see things with my own eyes. That’s probably one reason why I’m traveling. This journey already let me grew and got me used to things. By now it really takes a lot to freak me out. Although it has a lot of cons traveling longterm as it is really exhausting to be in new places all the time, I enjoy being outside so much. The opportunity to go hiking, surfing and see such a huge variety of people, nature and animals is just insane. And the fact that my office can be everywhere is pretty cool.

Where I learned something else

since 10/2021

We live with two dogs on less than five squaremeters in a Van to see the world. Sometimes we have hard times with having no space, limitations in water and energy, no bathroom and not enough privacy. But in the end we’re still on the road, because overall we enjoy what we are doing and it’s worth the cons. I learned a lot about nature and animals and the connection on how one thing influences another. I also begin to understand how the world rules in other parts of the world and I developed a good sense for safety.
And I also mastered the skill of not touching anything at public toilets.
