Since my studies in communication design I have been working for several multi-national agencies, clients and institutions in Germany, India, Malaysia, Egypt and Switzerland.
Today I am based back in my hometown Köln, working as a cultural manager, brand consultant and designer for clients and projects valuing diversity, sustainability and social justice.
My areas of responsibility range from media design, to strategic consultancy, developing communication concepts and creative campaigns building brands and communities.
Besides my commercial work I run Masala Movement e.V. a non-profit organisation, creating more visibility for underrepresented creatives and their projects and offering a transcultural platform for inspiration, professional collaboration and cultural education.
