CREATING MEANINGFUL PROJECTS
I CAME TO GIVE
I really tried to fit into a box. But the boxes just didn't fit. So I took the boxes and built a cardboard castle. Am I a social entrepreneur? An experience designer? A graphic designer? A mindful marketer? An artist? A dog trainer? Or maybe all of it.
KARAYA - ECO RETREAT CENTER FOR ART AND HEALING
I am currently working as general & marketing manager on the development of a 40 hectare retreat center for art & healing in Samaná / Dominican Republic. This place is supposed to be a playground for artists, a sanctuary for healers and a lighthouse for seekers.
Free- wild and connected. That's how I believe we all should live, animals included. My dream is to create open spaces where dogs get shelter, food, belonging and medical treatment and train and hire someone local to take care of them. The goal is that the dogs can keep as much of their freedom as possible while being safe and healthy.
My heart beats for street dogs. As a certified, treat-free dog trainer I decided to share my experience and knowledge for free and just ask for donations for the dogs that cross my path.

LIGHT'S AGENCY - BRANDING & MARKETING FOR SOCIAL IMPACT
Since I'm 20 I've been working in different positions in marketing and branding. For companies, for my own projects, as a freelancer and Art Director at the Impact Hub Vienna (international Co-working space for social businesses) and the Global Social Impact Award. My clients were 100% individuals, NGO's and businesses that make this world a better place. After many years I decided to focus on my other passion: trainings, event organization & creating spaces. So I closed this project and chapter, but still carry the love for mindful marketing and brave branding deep in my heart.
DieLichtfabrik was a space I founded in Vienna for projects that combine art, social impact and business. Apart from renting the space for events, theater, dance, music and creative meetings of companies we organized Pop Up markets for sustainable design, Secret Dinners, 'Crazy Town" and other experience events that I can tell you more about in person. Loved this time, space and people! Creating spaces, still a passion of mine since then.
art space for social impact
I was co-founder and visionary of the stEFFIE Festival - the first, experimental, fun festival for innovative education. We brought together the major European players in innovative education and invited them to give workshops, speeches or host sessions that make their methods experienceable. Andre Stern was one of our speakers, amongst many other inspiring international pioneers in this sector.

I was co-founder of Papertown, a company that develops architecture out of cardboard in order to have less impact on the environment. In the beginning we focussed mainly on stage designs for events, concerts and theater. Over time Papertown developed into a major player in the trade fair and event sector. I am still dearly connected with this project and sometimes jump in for branding or marketing endeavors.
PAPERTOWN - CARDBOARD CONSTRUCTIONS
NAU is a project that was mainly happening in the Lobau in Vienna and later on as part of 'Wild im West' in the city. The intention of this project is to reconnect people back to nature and offer a space for contemporary spirituality. To be fair I was just a brief part of this project but I still want to promote it here because I really love what my friends are doing here. Also check out all the Magika events like Cura Magika and Salon Magika. Really magical.
