Projects & Ventures

As an solution architect and creative director I work with various global brands on concept development and strategic execution to bring new technologies to the market. As an entrepreneur and consultant I partner up with investors to support companies with a digital mindset. As a leader I’m focused on envisioning the future, design-led execution and to build environments and ecosystems that support innovation and entrepreneurship.

 And as former head of design teams in advertising & marketing agency These Days (acquired by Wunderman) and technology network Cronos, I’m passionated about the creative industry, where I support creative talent and business leaders.
