I believe in the synergy effects developing when different disciplines and people meet. This synergy combined with an experimental and unbiased process-focused approach enables creativity with great innovative potential.
My field of work reaches from small to big scale design tasks, always focusing on an unconventional and experimental process of creation. I create spaces for creative synergies between art and science to enable innovation.
