I am a freelance designer and I create web-based data visualizations for modern web browsers. My lastest projects in this area focused on network-like data, such as knowledge structures and classification. This comes from my fascination with complex data and personal information management. I always seek to create custom-tailored solutions that make data more comprehensible, and which facilitate interaction in a more natural way. Design and aesthetics play an important role for me as well as technical considerations, since technological advances also yield new chances for data visualization. During my work as a research associate I gathered a lot of experience with technology that will likely become part of our daily life.

Work Experience

I am originally from Bremen, Germany. I have been living in Dresden since 2003. From 2012 to 2014 I worked as a Research Associate at the chair of Media Design at the Faculty of Computer Science, Technische Universität of Dresden (TUD). My research project concerned proficiency in multi-project management. This involved visualization of time-oriented data, computer supported collaborative work, and human-computer interaction in order to come up with new interface concepts. From 2009 to 2012 I worked as a graphic and interface designer at T-Systems Multimedia Solutions. From 2006 to 2009 I taught design courses at the chair of Media Design, and the chair of Didactics in Computer Science of TUD. In addition, I also gained work experience as a 3D Artist in game design at Exozet Games in 2008, and in photography working together with Lothar Sprenger in 2006/2007.


Prior to my work as Research Associate, I had studied Media Computer Science (TUD) with a focus on information visualization. I received a Diplom degree in 2012. From 2007 to 2008 I studied design and computer science separately at the University of Valle de Atemajac in Guadalajara, Mexico. Similar to my studies in Germany, it gave me the opportunity to be engaged in typography, corporate design, animation, and software development. I took additional art courses at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts from 2004 to 2005.
