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 >
Ein Besuch beim Schneider

Ein Besuch beim Schneider

Letzten Samstag war ich das erste Mal bei einem Schneider für Maßhemden und -anzüge. Bei den Maßtagen der Müller Maßmanufaktur, um genau zu sein. Es war für mich als jemanden, der Qualität und tolles Design schon immer zu schätzen wusste, ein ganz besonderes Erlebnis. Eine Erfahrung, die ich hier festhalten möchte.Weiterlesen >
My Botanical Inventory

My Botanical Inventory

If you'd ask me which of my things I like most, I would probably say: My plants. Over the years I've grown very fond of the idea of bringing life right into my cosy place. And as it is the case with most things I love, I wanted to start writing about it. So here it is: my plant inventory. To document, analyze and keep track of my urban jungle. And hopefully my own garden one day!Weiterlesen >
Culture & Creativity

Culture & Creativity

I've finally completed my very own culture journal. Within I'll keep track of all the wonderful ballets, musicals, classical concerts, operas and plays I have witnessed. I'm a huge fan of all of these performing arts, preferring the classics among them but also being interested in modern interpretations and ideas. I'm inspired by many friends who very regularly visit the theatre and I'm grateful for all of them! Here's to many more performances together with you guys!Weiterlesen >
Exploring the World one Step at a Time

Exploring the World one Step at a Time

Incomplete list of the places I've visited, explored and lived in for a while. In my life I want to understand the world and the people living in it as best as I can. Traveling and seeing first hand, experiencing the diversity that makes our little blue planet so special is essential to acquiring this knowledge. Over the time I'll add more places, satellite pictures and eventually links to articles that describe what made these places so special to me; what learnings they offered.Weiterlesen >
Painted Nails

Painted Nails

A one day romance we agreed upon. A one day romance we had. Though what was in between the lines Was, for me, so much more than that. For you, for sure, unknown. In your eyes, for me, Every light of New York City. But most of all – the truth. On your fingers‘ tips, for you, Just painted nails. For me – the truth Of New York City. We talked of dreams, of fainting youth. We talked so open, full of truth. From truth came trust, we touched, No fear. But in my ear, The haunting voice: this does…Weiterlesen >
