Moin! I'm Marc, a UX designer based in Colorado, originally hailing from northern Germany.

I've been designing digital experiences for over 6 years and have had the privilege of working alongside some wonderful people and on brands across a variety of industries. I always strive to combine human-centeredness with processes and systems to improve experiences both for customers and internal stakeholders. I specialize in interaction and experience design and love working with pixels and code just as much as working with dot-grid paper, post-its, and pens. My biggest design passion is design for social good, as originally inspired by the wonderful Design Ethos conference in Savannah, GA. 

I enjoy being exposed to different cultures and studying foreign languages. I believe my intercultural experiences — having lived in 4 different countries and places like Georgia and now Colorado — significantly influence my ability to create empathetic design solutions and keep me inspired.

When I am not designing, I am usually working out, hiking, playing a round of disc golf or tennis, or working on my beatboxing skills. Yes, you read that right. For the past couple of years, I have also been hosting a German meetup group.

Currently

(as of 08/07/2019)

Reading

I am currently reading "The Wise Man's Fear"  by Patrick Rothfuss. Reading lots of articles on documentation and reviewing research documents has led me to take a break on design books.

Listening

Most of the time I will be listening to "Myths and Legends" by Jason Weiser or "Hidden Brain" by Shankar Vedantam. Like last month, I am still greatly enjoying Steve Jobs' biography on Audible.

Tackling

My current focus is on optimizing and systemizing ways to collaborate and document throughout early design discovery down to final outputs and communicating vertical value slices.

"If you don't constantly try to get better, you will one day no longer be good enough"

Roughly translated quote from an old coach of mine, that always stuck with me.
