With more than 15 years of experience in design and technology, I am able to leverage my design skills and technology experience to identify, understand and solve complex problems. I thrive in a fast paced, collaborative environment, applying iterative design processes and leading projects from a design thinking point of view.
I have a deep understand of design driven technology projects and emphasize an agile approach, rapidly developing, testing and evaluating prototypes, figuring out what works and improving what doesn’t. I have led large-scale projects end-to-end, including research and discovery, prototyping and user testing all the way through design development and release.
I have experience leading complex projects with multiple stakeholders and diverse teams, while being a champion for good design practices, user-research and a user-centered approach. I have excellent communications skills and can clearly articulate and effectively communicate across an entire organization, and am able to bridge the gap between design, engineering and business.
I have managed diverse cross-functional teams that have included designers, content strategists, and developers. In my time at Bazinga I have removed silos between the product and development teams, focusing on a collaborative approach that gives everyone more ownership over the process. I believe in creating safe, creative, and collaborative work environments and leading by example.
I have experience applying different methodologies to teams, including waterfall, agile scrum and lean/kanban and have helped define the design and development process at both Bazinga and Yellow Pencil.
I am an exceptionally quick learner, excellent problem solver and have excellent communications and presentation skills. Having lived in Asia, Europe and North America I bring a globally inspired big picture view to the table and speak and write german fluently. I am an excellent problem solver, think well on my feet and can combine my analytical and creative sides to develop effective solutions that address real business and customer needs.
I believe in collaboration, that working together is better than working alone. I believe in leading by doing, listening more than speaking and being open to new ideas and approaches. I love the intersection of design, technology and people and looking for new ways of solving complex problems.
