Most of my work experience is within industrial and interaction design but due to the nature of my engineering background, I also have technical skills within manufacturing and mechanical construction. I excel in projects where skills in technical development as well as design for human factors are in focus. I am passionate about sustainable design where the full product life cycle is taken into consideration while still meeting corporate cost requirements.
