I've been working as an information architect and UX designer since 2001. I have worked at product companies, online agencies and co-founded a successful startup that has quickly become market-leader. I built and managed UX teams of 8–10 people.
Centralway AG (2013–)
Head of UX
At Centralway, we set out to redefine banking. I head up the UX research and design efforts to build a mobile-only, multi-banking platform.
Director of UX and product design
Ustream (now part of IBM) is the leading live video platform used by tens of millions. I built the 5-people UX team and designed many features.

I co-founded a top daily deal aggregator with 70 partners and more than 150,000 subscribers.
