In my work as a game designer I mainly focus on bringing people and games together. From creating engaging social gaming experiences to design workshops to challenging jams. I enjoy working with people of any age and skill level, and I love creating events and spaces in which gaming becomes a creative and social experience.
As a freelance media and museum educator I hold workshops, lectures and teach classes for teenagers and adults on different conferences, in museums and schools.

For JFC Medienzentrum and Computerspielemuseum Berlin I created and hosted a one week long game development workshop. The participants were 11-15 year old kids who got to learn the basics of game design, paper prototyping and programming, and finished the week by presenting their own games at the Computerspielemuseum.

This role playing card game was designed to be a conversation starter at game related events. It allowed visitors to slip into different roles and engage in playful interaction. (client: Gamestorm / A MAZE.)
GRID is a rhythm based and grid based playable installation. It’s a variant of a cops & robbers game, where programmes have to catch a hacker while moving to the beat of electronic music. (client: Gamestorm / A MAZE.)
During my time as a game design student and working as a designer at Playotope GmbH I was involved in other various game design projects. I researched and wrote characters, story driven quests for social games, storyboarded cut scenes, planned and mapped levels, developed and sketched game mechanics.
