About Me

I'm a UX architect and a user experience advocate since the very first minute. I breath and stand up for user-centered design and I do have 13 years of experience in digital, web and app design and I'm an expert in the field of high-fidelity interactive prototyping.

I do hold a Bachelor in Multimedia Arts with a major in web development from the Middlesex University London and a Master's degree in User Experience Management from the University of Applied Science in Vienna. During my professional career I already worked for many agencies and companies on various kinds of projects with international customers from around the globe.

I'm passionate about cutting edge technologies such as 3D-printing, artificial intelligence and mixed reality as well as human-computer interaction, internet of things and ubiquitous computing.

Besides that, I'm also the scientific coordinator for the User Experience Design Bootcamp at the Talent Garden Innovation School Vienna, talk on a regular basis about UX and prototyping and work together with various start ups from Europe and help them to shape their products towards great customer experience.
