I was born in Hannover, Germany in 1985. After school I worked for half a year in different social projects in India, the homeland of my father. 2005 I started my studies in Communication Design at the University of Arts Braunschweig and got my Diploma degree in 2010. Following my passion for photography and sociology, I then went to London and did a MA course in Photography and Urban Cultures at Goldmiths University of London.

Since my studies I'm designing classical print medias, preferable in the fields of social and sociopolitical themes, culture and arts.


In 2013 I published a shopping- und cultureguide for Hannover called "pssst! HANNOVER" in cooperation with two other graphic designers.

In April 2014 I adopted the shop "design zimmer" in Hannover and the label "hometown fashion and souvenirs". In the design zimmer I'm still working as a freelance graphic designer. I'm developing my own products for the shop as well as new designs for the hometown collection.
