I have been loving and living design and tech my whole career. I moved across a broad range of design disciplines from visual, interaction, 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 for SAP's Innovation Center Networks & Chief Innovation Office I craft future outlooks, strategies and products, define and run innovation frameworks to find out what’s next for SAP.
I have been named 1 of 100 most innovative minds in Germany 2017, by the prestigious Handelsblatt financial magazine.
I frequently share my passion for the future of technology and design as speaker, panelist and guest lecturer. (TEDx, SXSW, Ada Lovelace, CeBIT, MOBx, Grace Hopper, SIME, Kinnernet, 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 me eyes and possibly an interesting conversation.
What it means to be an innovator and designer is transforming faster than before, from classic styling of the superficial to system design of everything, including social and political systems, deeply rooted in a space of challenges and promises between cutting edge tech and humanism. In an increasingly exponential and converging digital change, we design a relationship, a behavior, that the product will follow. This exponential change is our most important design brief and the stakes are high, It is just too important to be left only to designers. I believe that everything can and should be given a purpose through innovation and design, including the innovation systems themselves.
