About me

I describe myself as an pragmatic optimist with big goals and the strong believe, that everything in life is good at least for something. With 20, I wanted to become an actress - but I am all too glad that this did not work out and I found my passion in product management and NoCode.
I am currently living in Cologne, apart from work I enjoy figure skating and tabata workouts, I love to travel and explore the world (in non-corona times) and consider myself a pretty good cook.
Always love a good chat about product, NoCode or Startups - happy to connect with you!

My mission

I fell in love with NoCode tools, when I started to build smart automated processes at the first company I worked for. Having no background in tech at all, NoCode gave me access to learn the logic of code and databases real quick - and in a fun and playful way. Since then I am on a mission to encourage more people to use tech in their every day (business) lives, and to think about tech as something fun rather than something scary.
That's why I started my own business VisualMakers together with my Co-Founder Alex Sprogis. We're sharing our favourite automations, hacks and discoveries we collected during the last couple of years - and always discovering new tools and workflows to share them with our community.

Co-Founder

With VisualMakers, my Co-Founder Alexander Sprogis and me want to share our knowledge about NoCode - and as stated in my mission, to show that tech is something fun rather than something scary. With tutorials about building websites, apps, webapps and automation with NoCode tools you can learn to build your own software and workflows. In our weekly podcast we talk to entrepreneurs, teams and organizations that use NoCode in their daily business, share ideas and best practices. And in our blogposts you can learn about the latest news in the NoCode space. I am super excited to do what I really love now fulltime - and hope a lot of you find our tipps and tricks useful. I'd be glad to welcome you as our community member!

From Working Student to Tech Lead

PIRATE.global is best known for its startup events, especially PIRATE Summit and the EXEC series, but also the company behind the global Startup SAFARI franchise.
I was the main driver behind the technologies, software and processes the company is using. I managed smart and lean processes by automating most of the internal workflows with NoCode Tools like Zapier. Since April 2019 I developed the job platform StartupJoblist.com together with a product team of three and took product ownership of Intro.chat, a speed dating tool for virtual events, where I worked with an external team of five.

What I expected to be a podcast episode about NoCode, turned out to be a deep, personal conversation about what drives me, how I work and why I founded VisualMakers together with Alexander Sprogis.

Tech as something fun

Tech as something fun

Blog Post

Everyone in the #NoCode space is talking about democratizing software. But what does that even mean?
After holding the first workshop about Zapier with the PIRATEx team, I think I have a better answer to that question now. Even though I thought it would be useful for everyone to learn more about NoCode, I didn't think that building together would have this much impact on the team.
