personal venture, co-founder, CEO and Head of Curation

 

As an entrepreneur, community builder and thought leader I have founded and established push conference, the largest event for UX professionals in the DACH region, in addition to my full-time practice.

The annual event brings together digital professionals that design compelling interactive experiences in the shape of products, apps, websites and installations, inspired by user needs and enabled by creative use of technology and critical thinking.

 
 
 
 
 

push conference is a 2-day UX and interaction design event with 600 attendees and 18 speakers annually in Munich, founded in 2012. 

 

7 editions | 100+ speakers | 3700+ attendees
