About me

I have been working enthusiastically in the IT industry for over 20 years and, after positions in the e-commerce and medical technology industries, have been working as a freelance UX designer in various companies since 2016. As a facilitator for User Experience I focus on user-centered design prozesses.

I am mostly a permanent member of a project team, but I also take on individual steps. If you have an interesting permanent position to fill, let's talk.
