I am an Industrial Designer and Engineer who likes to work on technology driven hardware projects. Curiosity about manufacturing methods is driving my designs and vice versa.
The focus is on Hardware Design, Environmental Impact, Tangible Interaction, Rendering and Machine Design.

Precious Plastic Industrial Design and machine building
Building machines for processing recycled post consumer plastic waste and design products with the materials from those sources.
Teufel Interaction Engineer Internship
Created interface concepts for better user experiences. Built specialized interaction frameworks for hardware development from scratch.
Designed and layouted new interfaces for active speaker systems. Built hardware prototypes and tested the user flow on users from our target groups.
Prototyped hardware interactions with Arduino and Processing.
ContiTech Consultant for PTC Windchill PLM Integration
Optimized the integration process of CAD-Files into a PLM System by programming shortcuts.
University Wuppertal, Social Augmented Learning 3D Artist and Animator
Worked at the „Social Agumented Learning“ project – bringing agumented reality into technical education. Converted CAD files to polygon models into the Unity 3D game engine and created animations.
Proform Intership Industrial Design
I worked on high end, presentation ready design models and got insights into a professional design agency workflow. Mainly worked for Hilti-Powertools. Organised small production runs with PU-Casting and CNC-Machining.
Festo Apprenticeship Draftsperson
Worked on rocket science 3D printing for manufacturing projects. Learned all about manufacturing processes and engineering within multiple CAD-Systems.
Had insights into several departments and visited courses in manufacturing about manual and CNC Lathes & Mills, basics of metal and polymer processing, pneumatic and electrical systems.

Trip to India
Hitchhiked from Germany to Turkey, traveled by train into Iran, went by ship to Dubai and by plane to India. Traveling slowly is the best way to get a insight into different cultures – great experience!
SandExplorer: Exploring Geospatial Data, Grain by Grain – In this paper, we introduce SandExplorer: a device to physically explore geospatial data by creating a 2.5-dimensional, topographic sand sculpture. This sculpture is created semi-manually, by moving a handle over a sandbox, which serves as a plotting canvas. The sandbox‘ shape represents the geospatial region the data is about. The amount of sand flowing from the system’s sand reservoir through the handle is regulated by a mapping algorithm, depending on the underlying data. With SandExplorer, users can playfully create a sand-based data ‚physicalization‘.
