I am currently working at Golden Section Graphics as an Information designer and data visualist. Before that, I attended the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam for my Master Degree in Interface Design. For this, I wrote my thesis about Micro Visualizations.
I am passionate about transferring information into visual structures. For me, the work with data and information combines the worlds of design and art with science to create something beautiful that conveys truth and knowlegde. Creating graphics with respect for the information and the reader dictates my daily work.
I feel comfortable with common front-end, and some back-end programming languages and a good range of graphic applications. Most of my visualizations emerge from the combination of diverse tools ranging from website scraping to data analysis applications and geographic information systems.
My private life is naturally influenced by my work and vice versa. Therefore, I am interested in all kinds of design and technology appliance, especially the critical reflection on the effect new media formats have on us.
For me, inspirational designs come from Japanese, Scandinavian and Swiss print design, typography and art.
Even though connected to my work, photography implies a break and recreation for me. Capturing something beautiful is a great combination of my love for aesthetics and the curiosity to explore foreign places.
As a member of the Scout Movement I do care about the environment and my influence on nature.
