CURRICULUM VITAE

WHERE I AM TODAY

I am a textile engineer, currently studying digital innovation in a part-time master’s program. Since my career started in 2011 as a trainee for windsor GmbH (part of the Holy Fashion Group) I gained a lot of work experience in the apparel and textiles industry. I was lucky enough to recieve deep insights and hands on experience from fabric creation over apparel manufacturing in Vietnam to the product management and development of fashion and sportswear brands.

In my current position, I had the opportunity to intensively accompany the setup of an innovation unit. I have not only worked on new textile products, but also on the department’s strategies and the underlying hypothesis. I had the chance to work closely with users of our products and services to verify or falsify our assumptions about what is really important to them. 

WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR

I am currently looking for a new full-time position to start as soon as possible. The perfect job would either involve me in a process to design strategic innovation or in developing and managing exciting products. What is most important to me are the following three topics:

PURPOSE

CREATIVITY

I am looking for a job that lets me work creativley on a wide variety of topics and that gives me and the team I am working in the freedom to choose our own way to achive the given goal.

INNOVATION

I am looking for a job that lets me work on tomorrows solutions instead of preserving the status quo.
