Hey, I'm Björn

I am from Münster, Germany and studying Industrial Design at the University of Wuppertal, currently doing an exchange semester at the University of Cincinnati in the United States.

Even in my childhood days, I always wanted to design, create and construct things. Therefore, studying industrial design was exactly the right path for me to to take.

Otherwise I love to do photography and videography and other creative things. But also being outside in nature and doing sports like mountain biking, hiking and many other outdoor activities are not to miss for me.
