I was born 1977 in Frankfurt. After school and social service, I started my career at an advertising agency where i quickly realized that instead of the creative process, i was more into the business aspect of companies.
The following two years of vocational training at Mannesmann Mobilfunk (now part of Vodafone) gave me a full rounded insight into the corporate world. Moving forward, I attended the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences and graduated as business administrator (Diploma) specializing in marketing and finance.
Since then I have worked at several corporate jobs in the financial industry. I have supported the introduction of a trading platform into the German market and advanced the derivatives database at Germanys largest provider of financial data.
As an entrepreneur I have developed several online and real world projects. Through my experience in corporate management, I focus on strategy, business development and finance – but most start-up companies need advisory in all business related activities, including legal and human resources, project management and sales.
I have a deep interest in the equity markets, and have been a private investor and trader for over 15 years now. Following the same principles and techniques, I’m a recreational poker player.
In my spare time I enjoy computing and creating – e.g. this website, video production and coding. I always look out to meet friends and like connecting with new people.
