About me

Change has been a con­stant in my life. I was born and raised in New York and moved fre­quent­ly since my child­hood. After my stud­ies I changed career fields sev­er­al times and that has made for a mul­ti­fac­eted CV. When I found myself in deci­sive peri­ods of change, I also called upon advice of a pro­fes­sion­al coach. That is how I myself dis­cov­ered what an impor­tant role a coach can play dur­ing times of transition.

Pro­fes­sion­al­ly and per­son­al­ly, my curios­i­ty for the indi­vid­ual per­son is at the cen­ter of what I do while the con­text is sec­ondary. That is why I think in net­works, oper­ate through net­works, built up net­works, and led pro­fes­sion­al net­works for many years. My career expe­ri­ence as a gen­er­al­ist, my inter­na­tion­al scope and my life expe­ri­ence enable me to empathize with entire­ly dif­fer­ent indi­vid­u­als and under­stand their diverse cul­tures and career fields.

My approach is always prag­mat­ic and ori­ent­ed towards an achiev­able goal. Last but not least, through good times and bad, my sense of humor has nev­er aban­doned me.
