  3. 3. A Short Story 3 GENERAL 1983 2009 I was born in Velden, Carinthia (Austria). Near my home town I attended a local school. Later on in my education, I focused primarily on information and commuication technologies and economics (Business School Villach). 2008 2009 Due to an internship and diploma thesis in Munich at User Interface Design (UID) I came in touch with design and usability issues. 2009 2011 Fascinated and deeply interested about non-technical issues I attended the master program Communication, Media and Knowledge in Hagenberg (Upper Austria). The personal goal was to broaden my profile in social sciences, communication and organizational theories as well as (social) media and design. 2010 2013 At this time, I started working as a User Interface Designer and Usability Engineer for A1 that was one of our major clients at my company Webdynamite IT Solutions GmbH. I became aware of design-related problems in organizational structures that were highly characterized by economic, political, technological and social tensions. 2011 2013 Deepening my design expertise in a master thesis about designing innovation with “Design Thinking” the idea was evolving that I’d like to learn more about the doing of design in the physical world. As a result I applied for the international master “Innovation and Product Management” getting more experience in product development and industrial design projects. Afterwards I studied Information Management with focus on software, information and database systems in Graz. CAREER The work with clients and end consumers was a life-changing experience to think in future projects beyond technical requirements and constraints. SKILL PROJECT INTEREST
