Experiences & Highlights

I am Full-stack designer building design systems for a next-gen Spend Management tool at Cardlay. Additionally, Ive led the design of our marketing site for three years and helped create attention-grabbing, self-explanatory visuals and experiences. With my UI and product engineering background, I collaborate seamlessly with developers and with strong communication skills that ensure transparency with stakeholders.

Previously, I was the design lead at ordbogen.com. My main focus was rebranding the company's identity and delivering modern visuals for all three product lines. The company wanted to expand and conquer the European market and needed a new strong profile for all product lines. My work was critical of how the public perceived the company as a new market leader. Additionally, I had the pleasure of being a mentor for new designers and was responsible for their growth and success.

I grew up in Denmark, where I had a passion for building and designing websites from a very young age. During design school, I started picking up the coding aspect, forming my systematic approaches to product design. I enjoy building rigorous design systems that are logical and easily scalable. I design solutions that convey emotion and humanity to achieve its goals effectively.

To put things in perspective, I've assisted on projects that have affected millions and made billions.
