I have been loving and living design and innovation my whole career. I moved across a broad range of design disciplines from visual, interaction, usability, service to system design and to be leading design as a strategic endeavor. Right now, I am on the mission to map, build and inspire a future we want to live in. As Chief Designer and futurist for SAP’s Innovation Center Network & Chief Innovation Office. I craft future outlooks, strategies and products, define and run innovation frameworks to find out what’s next for SAP and the future of work. I was named 1 of 100 most innovative minds in Germany by the biggest financial newspaper Handelsblatt in March 2017.
I frequently share my passion for the future of technology and design (TEDx, SingularityU Summit, CES, SxSW, Webit, Ada Lovelace, CeBIT, MOBx, Grace Hopper, SIME, MLOVE etc.) I build on my international adventures stretching from Poland, Sweden, China to Germany and across companies like SAP, Sony and Huawei, working with consumer electronics, media services and business software. There are probably very few Sci-Fi movies I have not yet seen, there are hundreds of forests I would love to mountain bike in and miles of coral reefs to dive on. Ask me about anything of the above and you will catch a spark in my eyes and possibly an interesting conversation.
Why I Tech
“I foremost love people and the future we are designing, our ingenuity, creativity and curiosity is what drives the future. I love the future because it is ever changing and inspiring and we will spend the rest of our lives there, so let’s make it great! I love tech because it is a tool for evolution, innovation and it makes us superhuman, realizing our imaginations.
