I graduated from the typeface design program at the University of Reading (UK) and hold a diploma in communication design from Hochschule Niederrhein (Germany). I also studied visual communication at Kunst- og designhøgskolen i Bergen (Norway) and civil engineering with a focus on hydrology in Enschede (The Netherlands) for a few semesters.

After completing the MA in 2011 I joined Dalton Maag, a London-based type foundry, where I now head the Skills & Process department. We are a multidisciplinary team of typeface designers, font engineers and software developers. Among other things we are responsible for training and development and the improvement of font development processes.

I’m an active member of Alphabettes, Association Typographique Internationale (ATypI) and the Unicode Consortium. I’m also coordinating a mentorship program with the aim to help students and professional newcomers immerse themselves in the industry.
