Christine Schnaithmann

Writing and producing her first radio play at the age of eleven, Tine soon learned that life itself writes the most amazing stories. She thus started to observe and listen closely in order to learn about the world. Eventually, her passion for stories motivated her to study Cultural History, Design Thinking and Impro Theater.

Tine majored in both Cultural Studies and Computer Science and she is one of the first HPI D-School alumni (class of 2008). She later joined the HPI D-School as a coach while working as a research scholar and lecturer at the Department for Cultural History and Theory at Humboldt-Universit├Ąt zu Berlin.

In 2015 she became a Program Manager at the HPI D-School. Tine intensely studied the theory, history and practice of digital media. She also has a strong interest in literature, architecture and psychology - in her PhD thesis she deconstructs Frank Lloyd Wright's Larkin Administration Building in order to tell the history of the modern office.

Ask her if you are interested in observation techniques, storytelling practices and epistemological questions, or tie your shoes and join her for a walk.
