I used to wake up every morning, looking at two big red chinese characters, symbolizing the words „Great Dragon“. Only a street with cars but mostly bikes separated the „Great Dragon Hotel“ from Sanlitun, the district for expatriates in Beijing. My parents decided to accept an international assignment and I spent four years in a country full of contrasts to my home culture.
What did I learn? That children from diverse countries do find a mutual language to play with each other. That culture can be experienced with all senses – it feels, smells, sounds, looks and tastes different. I find my experiences with the eyes of a child as the foundation of my professional focus.


Professional background

The intercultural aspect followed me ever since. My professional career started in a multinational mid-sized company located thirty minutes from Manhattan. I continued to work for Oracle, a global software company with presence in over 145 countries and over 120.000 employees worldwide. Within eight years I have sold training solutions, software solutions into cross-european accounts and have been in Marketing and Sales Programs for Switzerland and Germany. My focus also was to drive social media adoption within Oracle. In 2009 I started education in the intercultural field and continued my professional experience as trainer and consultant. This has been extended to expatriate services when I founded G1OBALS GmbH in 2011, a startup to support relocation. 


I returned to IT when I joined Computacenter in 2014 where I am in Alliance Management for Microsoft. I still carry out trainings in intercultural topics, solution sales and marketing.



The centre of my private life is Berlin, a city I love for its possibilities, international flavor and tolerance.


In my spare time I enjoy time with family and friends: get together's, Sunday brunch, sport, playing with my nephews, traveling or supporting with ideas around interior design...
