Based in Berlin, I’m working in economic and academic contexts. Sometimes I write about cultural and media phaenomena ░ I’m passionate about three things △ Embracing complex challenges, exploring creative energies, and trying to enable other people to embrace and explore what is important to them ♡

 

 

1. Embracing complexity of trans-discipliary problems

 

As a founding employee and Head of Strategy at RCKT. I’ve worked as digital change- and branding-consultant for companies like Bahlsen Group, Deutsche Bahn, Deutsche Bank, Rocket Internet, Merck, Capgemini, Messe Frankfurt, and many international start-ups, such as Triprebel, Jodel, Eyeem or Foodspring.

 

As a doctoral candiate at the University of the Arts Berlin I’m researching on the topic of the uncanny sides of technological interfaces under the guidance of Thomas Düllo and Siegfried Zielinski. With Joachim Haupt and Johannes Fertmann I am chairman of the UdK Berlin Circle of Entrepreneurship & Cultures.

 

 

2. Exploring energies to create vibrant ideas & products

 

gamingI’ve co-founded the tech-startup Archomedia GmbH. We created the CMS “Unitation”, which was used by over 50.000 pro-gamers world wide and the marketing tool Seeds, which is used by over 150 Mercedes Benz affiliates. I am appointed as Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the successor EELOY AG.

 

texturenI am co-editor and founder of the book series texturen, a periodical for cultural texts and co-editor of the book Forum on the Genealogy of MediaThinking 2. I have also published many articles and essays about media and cultural phaenomena.

 

 

3. Enableing other people to do step one and two

 

teachingAs research fellow I’m teaching at the UdK Berlin at the Institute for Theory and Praxis of Communication and – as a visiting scholar – at The Chinese University of Hong Kong at the Department of Anthropology.

 

I frequently do start-up mentoring for ProSiebenSat.1 Accelerator, Rocket Internet, betahaus Berlin, and WestTech Ventures / Project Flying Elephant.
