My current day-to-day work is as an Innovation Manager for Deutsche Welle, mainly in EU-funded research projects related to media technology. Our team looks how new technology can enhance information, reporting and content distribution.

My current project is Bloomen.io, where we explore how Blockchain technology can be used for media asset management. I am responsible for Bloomen Photo, a platform using blockchain technology for a better exchange between creators and buyers of photos. I am working out of Bonn & Cologne, Germany.
