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

I've been designing digital experiences for over 7 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. Early on in my graduate school experience, I was introduced to the credo of designing with  people, not just for people. 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. 

Currently

(as of 6/29/2020)

Reading

I am currently investing time in informing myself about the historic backgrounds of racial injustices in the United States and reading related books and articles. 

Listening

I just listened to the 1619 podcast and started a few episodes on Code Switch, among a few others. Beyond that, there is not much else worth noting. 

Tackling

I am still trying to work through a few online courses around design thinking and human centered design. I also started mentoring at UX Coffee Hours

"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.
