About me

My passion lies at the intersection of learning, communication and design: I started out in translation and copywriting working for big brands and gradually got into visual communication, storytelling and user experience. I love working with ideas as well as getting my hands dirty pushing pixels and sorting out post-it notes. Design for me is the perfect bridge between these two worlds!

    • A big part of my work is designing Betazone presentations for global WEF meetings. These are immersive talks featuring academics, designers, business leaders and explorers. I help speakers develop their stories and produce visual presentations and animated backdrops. In the run-up to the events, I run storytelling workshops to help colleagues brief speakers and moderators. When not working on Betazones, I write copy and design collateral and visual assets for internal communication and e-Learning courses.
