I’m a behaviour and design nerd. 

That’s why I’m a designer, psychologist, strategist and researcher all at once.

I aim to improve lives and create social change.

Being a designer as well as a psychologist, I design for people. I do this in many different ways.

I utilize human-centered design combined with strategic thinking and visual design, and leverage evidence-based frameworks from psychology to craft solutions for complex problems and impactful design that addresses the actual needs of people and is visually evocative.

At the moment, I design innovative healthcare solutions as a part of the Insights and Esperience Strategy (IXS) Team at Johnson&Johnson.

In my private projects, I’m transforming findings from academic research in psychology into speculative art interventions. I’m finding creative expression in photography and painting, as well as various other mediums. I’m also practicing various kinds of meditation and yoga and I’m active in artist communities throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan and Berlin. 

Let’s change the world together! ︎
