I’m an editor, strategist and curator.

I’m interested in the societal and cultural impact of new technologies; how the tools we use change the way we express ourselves, connect with others and create meaning in our lives.






What I’m doing now (2023) I run co—matter, a research & strategy studio in Berlin.

I write a newsletter. I use writing as a process to gain clarity and connect ideas, resulting in longer-form essays on topics such as the value of NFTs, the gamification of web3 and the evolution of identity.

I host The Culture & Technology Podcast, a series of conversations with curators, researchers, artists, architects, directors and other leading creatives on how technology shapes cultural experiences.

I’m a founding member of ProteinDAO, contributor at Metalabel and RADAR DAO and curator at Startupy.

What I’ve done before I was part of the founding team of a startup (EyeEm) and built its community, brand and creative partnerships for six years. We competed with Instagram and got acquired in 2021. I’m a founding member of Techfestival, a Copenhagen based think tank and festival. I was interim global marketing & brand strategy lead for Samsung’s investment and innovation arm (Samsung Next).

Before that I was managing editor at Lomography, the analog photo community that became a global phenomenon when digital photography went mainstream. I studied philosophy in Vienna and Paris, eventually discovering media philosophy as the connecting layer between my interest in technology & its influence on the way we perceive and understand the world
