I am a designer who is passionate about finding solutions to peoples problems that feels like natural nodes in our everyday flow of life. I aim to create objects that enhance the human experience and strive towards better life quality for all.

 

From my 2 years of experience as a designer I have worked on refining my craftsmanship to be able to bring creative solutions into finished products. I love working together with people and value the stories people have shared with me. I believe stories are the foundation to good design.

Here is my education.

Royal Danish Academy of Design

Master studies in industrial design

At the design academy I focused on developing my design process and my skills to create products that increase our life quality. I had the chance to explore designing for amputees, for professional cleaning and for minimizing our use of resources.

As a designer I strive to create a symbiosis between form and function to make people's lives more enjoyable.

Bachelor industrial design engineer

For a year I studied industrial design with a human centred approach together with people with different backgrounds from all around the world. The course consisted of projects in industrial, service, transportation and interaction design.

At LTU I studied ergonomic, technical and aesthetic aspects of design with the person and environment the design is aimed for in focus. From my time in LTU I learned a lot of the skills related to CAD, manufacturing techniques and ergonomic assessments I use today.
