About my passion in the field of communication in every aspect - live or digital – for more than 20 years.

 

It turns out that my CV, which is not always completely linear, has a significant advantage: adaptability, mental flexibility and discipline.
Or other said: I’m a solutions-oriented, motivated, entrepreneurial pragmatist with highly developed empathic skills.
