Hi there. I'm Markus.

I'm a designer focused on approaching systemic challenges, exploring alternative futures, and developing long-term strategies.

As an independent practitioner I work on self-initiated projects and help organizations like the MIT, TheGreenEyl, and DesignFarm to (re)design products, services, and systems.

I'm the co-creator of OpenDataCam, an open source tool for offline, transparent and privacy respecting AI-based data collection in urban environments.

Formerly I've worked at the Daimler subsidiaries FREE NOW and moovel, where I've had key roles in several research projects, approaching questions around artificial intelligence, multimodal mobility, and emerging markets. I've also worked at the design firm Domestic Data Streamers, where I've helped to develop data-driven experiences, stories, and installations.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Design from the HTW Berlin, and was an exchange student at the EASD València and the UPA Santiago de Chile.

Currently I'm based in Berlin, after having lived in Stuttgart, New York, Barcelona, Valencia, Santiago de Chile, and Mössingen.
