Moritz Philip Recke
I am a passionate and empathetic engineer at heart with strong background in product design, business development and project management, extensive leadership experience and keen ability to sense white space.
Engineer. Essentialist. Explorer.

After several years of building up digital companies and cross-media products as well as leading large IT and executive change management projects within the advertising and publishing industry, I now focus on software engineering as a creative process and group collaboration.
As an Educator, I do research in the field of learning experience design and facilitate the formative education at the University of Naples Federico II’s Apple Developer Academy based on the Challenge Based Learning methodology framework. Beyond a PhD in sociotechnical imaginaries and public policy, I hold an engineering degree (Dipl. Ing.) in Media Technology and a M.A. in Next Media.
