As a designer working across physical and digital spaces, since studying communication design my focus has been on exploring co-creation between humans and AI. I like to experiment with various tools and technologies. In my workshops, I emphasize hands-on exploration of new tech, encouraging a mindset of playful experimentation.


Currently, I'm working as a freelance designer, mainly doing workshops on how artificial intelligence can augment, not just replace, our creative processes. Since 2022, I've been part of the Prompt Battle team, participating in events like re:publica and transmediale.
