Hi, I am AJ,
a Digital Product Designer.

I am original from Germany, currently living in Amsterdam. Working at the intersection of user experience design and business strategy. Driven by human-centered design thinking, I shape futuristic products that will impact our lives in the years to come.

Currently, I am freelancing for a startup in the Netherlands, where I develop an AI-powered gardening dashboard.

Previously, I had the privilege to lead multidisciplinary teams developing products used and loved by thousands. For clients including UniCredit, MunichRe, Mammut, and more.

Let's talk!
 "Our lives might be complex and messy, but the interactions with our products shouldn't be."

Personal

I enjoy pushing my boundaries at work and in my free time. Take sports, for instance: I go swimming, ballroom dancing, hiking, sailing, and paragliding.

I love technology! Besides designing digital products professionally, I engineer IoT devices and autonomous robots for fun.  

My curiosity lets me venture into the world far outside the beaten track. I explored 35+ countries across four continents in my 39-year-old Toyota Landcruiser. Crossing war zones taught me to stay calm and diplomatic.​​​​​​​

I seize every opportunity for an adventure and spent several years abroad. Every journey I embark on opens my eyes to new experiences and cultures. I enjoy leaving my comfort zone and interacting with people from various cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

Let's be friends!
