Designed and explored future concepts for Audi and other VW brands at their research and development lab in Silicon Valley.
Starting as an Interaction Designer, I had an opportunity to influence many products in a rapidly changing mobility environment. These ranged from market adaptations, physical input devices, new mental models, and brand engagement.
The role grew to encompass a much more strategic emphasis. Collaborating with many different departments throughout the VW Group, I worked to evangelize, visualize, and embody changes needed to transform the automotive giant in a new economy.
