About Me

I was born in Marl, Germany, in 1973 where I spent 34 years progressing through school, university, and then work in the industry.

In 2007, I moved to New Zealand to work on my PhD at University of Auckland. Four years later, having successfully finished my dissertation, I am now working as senior lecturer for Huri te Ao/The School of Future Environments at the Auckland University of Technology (AUT).

It is here that I combine my passion and talent for teaching with the perks of working at the forefront of technology and knowledge in an academic setting.
