I designed and developed my first project Spotown as part of the 3-month Full Stack Development bootcamp I completed at neuefische in Hamburg. It is an all-in-one web app to save, organise and share your favourite locations. Save new discoveries, revisit them and share them with friends.

About me

Currently, I am a Senior Product Manager at Adobe, particularly the Adobe Content Platform and Collaboration, focusing on infrastructure performance and the live co-editing capability.

I love to dig into problems and to bring order into chaos. I have co-founded three startups and have led our teams through from organic bootstrapping to venture capital funded growth. Simplicity lies at the core of my work and defines the products that I create, scale and optimise to create value for their users.

I like to express my creativity through photography, videography and design and have been freelancing in the digital media space for over 15 years.

I received my education at ie Business School and Cornell University from which I received my B. Sc. in Business Administration with honours. Additionally, I also graduated from a full-stack development coding bootcamp to expand my tech stack.
