Enthusiastic and full of energy. Looking for stories within Tinker and connecting them to the outside world - and vice versa.

Imagine, create, deliver. That, in a nutshell, is what my colleagues do. And that is exactly what I like to do, too. I create things - in the widest sense. In my free time, my activities range from photography, graphic design, and gardening to doing DIY jobs. In the field of communication and PR, this is my approach as well. I use text and images as tools to get the message across. An added advantage when you also get to work with designers and other inspiring creatives. My experience in working for agencies and clients comes in handy when communicating with our clients.

So, what do I do at Tinker? Simply put: making sure that we are seen and heard. In doing so, I always look for opportunities to be seized. I like clear language, tailored to the person in front of me. Client, partner, journalist, or visitor? I always try to make a connection and adapt my (visual) language to be effective. Besides PR activities, I support Tinker projects in terms of content, research or graphic work.
