I would like to introduce myself here shortly:

Born and raised in Germany I decided after studying architecture at the Technical University of Braunschweig and gaining some years of professional experience in the German architecture and building business to move to the United States in May 2013.

From 2013 until the beginning of 2016 I lived in the Greater Boston area, MA. I chose to settle here, because I had lived here in 2008 during an internship for an architecture firm. I was familiar with the area and just love the fresh breeze of New England’s coast. In early 2016 I decided after several private visits to live in Austin, TX for some time before returning to New England in the end of 2017.

I started gaining experience in the construction business before and also while studying architecture, and also have been working after my graduation in the architecture business ever since. Next to my architecture job I occasionally also work as a freelance graphic designer or help family/friends with creating private invitations and similar work.

In the architecture business my interest is focused on project and team management. I like to see the “big picture” and love being challenged with organization, schedule and coordination of all project pieces. I also learned  loving my role as a QA/QC team member of the company I work for. I realized that sharing my knowledge and teaching other coworkers became a mission for me.

For the future, I can classify my goals into two categories: I would love to further work on graphic and photography jobs. I have great joy in working with programs like Illustrator and Photoshop.  – My other interest that has been evolving stronger within the past year is to provide and help people with my technical knowledge in the construction field, may it be a coworker, a client or the GC I’m working with. I graduated in architecture not just because of my creative side, but also to help build successful and sustainable architecture.

Thank you for visiting my website,
