About me

I'm based in Copenhagen since 2014. I hold an MA from KADK in Codesign. I have decided to study Codesign because I strongly believe that design should help us overcome challenges on our everyday life. I'm talking more precisely about public activities, services and spaces. I can see myself designing in libraries, public officies and culturhouses. If you're interested just check my portfolio out!
