I was born in Germany and spent my childhood in both Sweden and Germany in a bilingual family. After training and working as a chef in various countries in Europe and the US and earning a BFA in the Culinary Arts from Örebro University in Sweden, I attended Parsons School of Design in NYC. In 2011 I graduated with an MFA in Industrial Design from Konstfack.
Projects that cross disciplines - consumer electronics, branding, culinary arts and home decor - have been and continue to be the work that hold the most meaning for me. I consider myself a global citizen and have worked in professional studios in Europe as well as the US within both the fields of Culinary Arts as well as Industrial Design.
In my life I have always been the happiest wherever interesting work has taken me and I am currently a Senior Designer at Google based in Mountain View, California.
During my time at boutique design studios and large corporations, I had the opportunity to experience many different dynamics.
From quick and fast ideation to meticulously detailed engineering and cost driven projects.
I have had the chance to design for a wide variety of clients, spanning many industries and materials at factories across the globe. From research to production, often involving hands-on work with Engineering teams in China and Taiwan.
I've been fortunate to collect 17 International design awards such as Red Dot Best of the Best, iF, IDEA Gold, IDA Gold as well as the the CES Innovation Award.
Academics & Exhibitions
Education being close to my heart, I have had the pleasure to be invited as a guest lecturer, speaker and mentor to numerous institutions such as Parsons School of Design, Konstfack, Örebro University Grythyttan Campus and FHNW.
My work has been exhibited at ICFF in New York, Formex in Stockholm among other places.
I am always looking for more opportunities to interact with students and please don't hesitate to get in touch for requests relating to speaking and lecturing, workshops, mentoring or other education related matters.
