20212023

After growing up in Germany, I have lived in The Netherlands, Belgium, Puerto Rico, the United States, France, Taiwan, Denmark, Colombia and Brazil before coming back with my family to Germany. As an entrepreneur by heart, I started the first of my 4 entrepreneurial endeavours, a small seafood business, while I was a bachelor student in Puerto Rico. Then my career led me through software development, digital transformation & strategy consulting, angel/ venture/ private equity investments back to my greatest passion, hands-on entrepreneurship. I now want to continue my entrepreneurial career through a company acquisition.
