+ About



I am a Swiss-Austrian-American designer living and working in New York City.  

I am a multi-disciplinary designer and strategistI see design as a force for social change and the best framework for tackling problems that matter. Through my work, I seek to promote inclusiveness and justice by creating win-win strategies, facilitating collaboration, participation, and psychological safety, encouraging prosocial behavior, and envisioning alternative systems. I am particularly interested in projects around civic innovation and organizational behavior. 

In my capacity as a freelance design strategist and consultant, I take on projects that resonate with my values, facilitating brand strategy workshops, doing graphic and web design for non-profit organizations, and collaborating on design research and behavioral design exercises. I am always eager to talk about new collaborations.
