Gentrification in Berlin
Gentrification in Berlin
As one of my side projects during my sabbatical break in 2015, I've worked with a sociology research group to visualize the process of gentrification in one of the most dynamic cities in Europe.

Over the last 10 years, I’ve been teaching interface design courses, co-organised a dataviz meet-up and wrote a guide book for information design. After several years of freelancing for clients such as Deutsche Telekom, MetaDesign or the Global Fund, I joined UX design firm MING Labs as one of the founding team members. Here, I was responsible for setting up and running the company’s Berlin office, which grew from zero to 20 people in less than three years. Since October 2015 I'm based in Singapore, where I'm helping to set up the company's youngest office.

I’ve been working with clients from small startups to large-scale organisations in a variety of industries such as telecom, logistics, urban planning and manufacturing. My experience in both design and development allows me to effectively manage design teams, communicate between project stakeholders and design solutions to complex business problems. When I’m not working, I enjoy travelling the world, exploring new dive spots and paddling off the coast of Singapore.

If you want to know more about me, check out my projects and writings, read my bio or follow my rather infrequent outbursts on Twitter. Apart from that, I’m always up for a coffee – just drop me a line!
