Hi, 👋 I'm @sammyschuckert a 27-year-old UX Designer working at IBM. I was born and raised in Heidelberg, Germany and graduated with an M.A. in strategic design from the HfG Schwaebisch Gmuend earlier this year.

I co-founded a sharing economy startup called thangs – stuffsharing with friends during my studies in 2016. Therefore, my friends would describe me as an advocate of the #sharingeconomy and a part-time #digitalnomad – not the one who is living 24/7 at the beach. 😉

Besides that, I'm a huge Star Wars and Pixar fan, have a deep passion for technology and everything that's digital. It is my belief that human-centered design methods are the key to solving some of the biggest challenges we face today.
