Cand.it. – IT University of Copenhagen.
Master’s Degree – Communication, and Media

I’m practical and pragmatic in my approach. I believe that small, frequent and concrete input is the best approach. That’s why I don’t deliver long reports nor polished prototypes or pixel-perfect design.

Good to know about me

  • I try to convince people to focus on users and context instead of current trends
  • I do my best to combine business goals and users’ needs and wishes
  • I love to experiment and welcome challenges I haven’t done before
  • I say “it depends” a lot
  • I like to work as a team
  • I prefer not to design without research
  • I do more than just layouts. Actually if you’re looking for pixel-perfect design I recommend you to hire a graphical designer 🙂
