I think technology should empower people and their struggles. Since several years I work with projects of the Internet freedom community such as Article19, Tails, and Tactical Tech, as well as with non-profit organizations such as the German Institute for Foreign Relations (ifa), Human Rights Protocol Considerations Research Group (HRPC), Mobilizing Activists around Medical Abortion (MAMA) Network, Galerie für zeitgenössische Kunst Leipzig.
Originally trained as a front end web developer, I also work as a project facilitator and have extended my technical expertise to new areas. For example, I am also a Debian Developer and maintain software related to privacy and anonymity online.
Born and grown in East Berlin, I hold a post-graduate degree in Visual and Contemporary Arts
(summa cum laude, 2006) and a Maîtrise in Arts and Image Technologies (2004) from
Université Paris VIII.
I'm fluent in German (mother tongue), French (studied, lived and worked in France for over 15 years), and English.
