  • Love what you do

    Things I'm interested in: Digitalization, Media, Board Games, Marketing, Graphic Design, Skiing & Snowboarding, Advertising, Fifa 2015, watching or playing Soccer Games, wandering/traveling, life, time, body and mind.

Curriculum

I’m a design obsessed startup enthusiast - I love people, products, brands and the innovation that drives them forward. After first career endeavours in banking and consulting I ended up in brand management of Procter & Gamble. I've worked for a tech startup called Parquery and I'm currently working on a new venture. Industries I know a thing or two about are:

- Consumer goods with focus on beauty and fragrances
- Sustainable buildings and electric cars
- Parking industry and its digital transformation
- Social travel startups and monetization models
- Digital advertising and personal data industry
