I help others grow, create and reflect.




I design, plan and lead design education for students, companies and organisations.

I've coached and designed learning journeys for kids, high school students, undergrad and grad students, teachers, design agencies, start-ups, SMEs, multinational companies and NGOs across different countries in Europe, Asia, America and Australia. 

For 2 years I was a programme lead at the HPI School of Design Thinking, where I designed, managed and co-led the academic program in Design Thinking. In 2014, I was a guest lecturer at Design Factory International in Zhuhai, China, in 2016/2017 I was a visiting lecturer at the Royal College of Art in London, in 2017 I was a Harvard teaching fellow for the Center for Asia Leadership teaching leadership and design across different Asian countries.

I work best in teams and strongly believe in leading teams with teams. I therefore rarely work alone but collaborate with great people from a range of different disciplines.
