Marienfestung Würzburg

Marienfestung Würzburg

This week I was visiting my mum in Würzburg, in the south of Germany. It was the first time I could really put the camera of my new iPhone X to use and test it's features like the Portrait Mode. Of course, it is still far from perfect and for some situations, I still prefer my Canon DSLR. However, smartphones are closing the gap. Some of the iPhone's algorithms for picture optimization and manipulation really surprised me. Especially thinking about where all this could easily go within the next few months or years. I see a lot of creative potential here!Weiterlesen >
Another Kind of Self-discovery

Another Kind of Self-discovery

In the past weeks my creative juices have been quite active again. I stumble over things by accident and ideas and "what-ifs" seem to take over my mind with a tight grip. When time allows it, I indulge in them and it's quite interesting to see what happens. For example, this week, I found some old MRI scans of my head. Don't ask how I got those back in 2015 – it was a mixture of curiosity and persistence, as it is always the case with me. But when I saw them these days, I wondered: What can I do with these? Can I take the information they contain and make something new out of it? Shouldn't I be able to generate a 3D model with the help of some clever algorithms? The game was on. There wasn't a purpose or application. And there still isn't. There are just possibilities. For another kind of self-discovery.Weiterlesen >
Enjoy Paradise in South East Asia

Enjoy Paradise in South East Asia

Today I’ve had a nice brunch with my friend Betti who needed some travel advice for Thailand. After talking to her, I realized I’d have to come up with a small list or so in order to really help her and in order to keep this list structured, I thought I could also directly pack it into a new post and share it with all of you. So here it is: my perspective on this fascinating country and what to keep in mind when planning your trip.Weiterlesen >
Product Owning Wrap-Up: What I’ve learned so far

Product Owning Wrap-Up: What I’ve learned so far

Just 14 months ago I started working as a Product Owner for Ligatus, a leading tech company in programmatic native advertising. I came from a background of media production and design, economics and management and had nearly no IT knowledge. These months were characterized by a very steep learning curve so that now, I'm at a point where it's time to wrap it all up and figure out the next steps. Because one thing is for sure: I have found my dream job and I've only just begun living the dream.Weiterlesen >
Hamburg from above

Hamburg from above

On Monday, 25th of June, I had the amazing chance to join my colleague Jan on one of his flights above Hamburg. Jan happens to be a hobby pilot. How awesome is that?! The photos I took on this flight are even more awesome – my most beloved city from above. Enjoy!Weiterlesen >
