about me

I love to work with people on solving their challenges with a holistic mindset, writing narratives, and creating beautiful sustainable services and products. I am based in Berlin, Germany, but also work remotely in project teams since 2018.
I try to live my life in beta.

I focus my work on three fields around sustainability.

  • Regenerative practices with Holistic Management
  • Human and planet centered UX writing
  • Shaping the local Circular Economy

For the last 3 years I worked in user experience projects in (digital) products and services — for customers or within a company — and with companies and NGOs to transform products and business models with a circular economy mindset and sustainable practices.

Someone lately used the word polymath. I am not sure if that’s the correct way to describe me, but I do know from my project work that the more diverse people within the team and within their personal interests and backgrounds the better the outcomes will be.

No matter the topic or the industry, to solve problems in a complex system you need diversity in thinking to

  • understand and build empathy,
  • create ideas,
  • prototype and test them,
  • make a plan to realize them, and
  • monitor the realization to learn, adapt, and
  • create a sustainable effect.

I believe that regenerating our soils is not only a big chance to capture carbon out of the atmosphere but also the way to create a sustainable, food-secure future. What I love about Holistic Management is that it takes land managers — farmers, ranchers, ranger, and more —  back from reacting into acting together in nature’s way.

I love to be on stage, to pursue items from my bucket list, and to write about everyday moments here and on my personal blog “Across The Ocean”.
