I am a Manhattan-based interaction designer from Germany. Focusing on UI and UX, I design and develop websites, interactive installations and exhibits by merging my expertise in graphic design and coding. Recent clients include the MoMA, One Laptop Per Child, Turner Classic Movies, 20th Century Fox, Warner Brothers and the Hearst Corporation.

Since graduating from Risd in 2006, my work has been honored by the Art Directors Club, the Type Directors Club, Adobe, AIGA and others and has been featured in various publications such as the NY Times and HOW Magazine.
