Where do I come from?
I was born in Gelsenkirchen in the Ruhr area at a time when coal was still mined there and burned in blast furnaces. Even though I moved away from there when I was 4 years old, I still have many positive memories of the place and the people there. After different stations in Latin America and Asia I live today in my favorite European cities with "B". Barcelona and Berlin.
What drives me?
The search for the right, ambitious but realistic solution and the diversity of the world.
What is my strategy?
First to listen and look and then to try to understand new information, to look at it from different angles and then to use new knowledge advantageously.
When are you coming over?
Strategy Studios in Berlin and Stuttgart.
Arrive, exchange, have fun.
It’s on us!
