About me

It's my passion to create outstanding UX design, guarantee high-quality implementation in order to delight users with the best possible product experience! Started as a front-end developer, switched to usability engineering and finally developed into a Lead UX designer. So I have experience in almost every area of software development. My expertise ranges from freelancing and start-ups over design agencies to major international corporations. Over the last years, I have focused more on native mobile apps and love the challenge in designing an appealing ui of complex requirements for such narrowed screen estate.
