Trusted Advisor, Founder & Business Angel

With more than 20 years of experience in digital business models, software development, product management and online marketing, I am happy to support you as a consultant, interim manager, advisory board member and angel investor.

Early Passion for Technology

My fascination with technology began early, thanks to my parents who introduced me to IT at a young age. At about 10 years old, I had my first experiences with a Commodore C64. Shortly thereafter, in the early 1990s, I received an IBM PC and started writing my first lines of code in BASIC. These early experiences ignited a passion for digitalization that continues to this day.

Studying at Middlesex University

In the early 2000s, I started studying at the SAE Institute and Middlesex University London and became heavily involved in software development and interface design.

Research at Fraunhofer Institute

At the end of my studies, I was able to gain valuable experience as a research assistant at the renowned Fraunhofer Institute IAO as part of my thesis on the topic of "Requirements for knowledge management systems to support customer knowledge management and innovation processes in companies". Since then, the topic of requirements management has played an important role in my work.

Entrepreneurial Experience in Start-Ups

At OnVista, I not only gained valuable experience in portal business and digital advertising marketing but also got to know Henning Lange and Oliver Thylman, who shortly afterwards founded Ormigo (acquired by Müller Medien) and Adcloud (acquired by Deutsche Post AG) - with me as one of the first 3 employees - and I actively engaged in building the companies.

Management Consulting & Interim Management

Since 2008, I have been advising numerous companies as a Trusted Advisor and Interim Manager in close cooperation with the renowned boutique consultancy wdp (acquired by valantic) in digital transformation, product development, and the development of digital business models.

Own Start-Ups, Products & Ventures

My expertise in the core areas of consulting such as digital business models, software development, product management, online marketing, and advertising technology is also based on the development of my own successful products. For instance, the current Atlaris GmbH operates various digital tools and portals such as (leading comparison portals for MBA programs) or wheretogo (travel destination search engine).
