ABOUT

I am a UX/UI designer with a mission to make the world a more enjoyable place to live when interacting with the technologies that surrounds us. I am fascinated with humans and how they think and behave and motivated by making their lives easier. I believe that design is a key parameter in adding value and usability to good solutions and should be integrated early in any development process. I love to work with others in teams and discussing complicated problems, but also to immerse myself in a task and give it my very best.

I will be graduating as a Design Engineer from the Technical University of Denmark in February 2016, where I have specialized in User Experience and Digital Media, but I have already gained a few years of experience within the field of UX and UI from an internship and student position at the medico company Radiometer. Furthermore, I have participated in several student projects in collaboration with industrial partners, where I have learned the tricks of the trade.

With this portfolio I want to present a taste of what I can do for you. So take a look and let me know what you think.
