UX strategist & designer.

Cutting through the hype of emerging technologies to build better futures.

I'm a creatively curious and strategic UX designer. Born and raised in Denmark, I now live in the Bay Area, California, where I strive to ensure the future doesn't turn into a Sci-Fi dystopia .

I get excited about all-things user research, by flipping design problems upside-down, by geeking out about data flows and system architectures, and by stubbornly fighting for futures that will help improve people's quality of life and wellbeing.

Currently at VW Group Innovation, envisioning the future of conversational interfaces, concepts for in-car wellbeing, and ecosystems for sustainable mobility.
