The short story

I get the job done, whether it’s leading your team to excellent results or making your communication project a success. From launching social media channels (for Netflix), making YouTube videos (for Mercedes) to steering a content marketing team (for Volkswagen) or doing a huge TV commercial (for European Union & Uefa), I lead teams and projects at digital agencies in Berlin and turn them into a success. Freelance or employed.


Digital innovation and digital content production has always been the focus in my career. At TLGG, the first social media agency of Germany, we accompanied the launch of Netflix in Germany.
In the last two years (2018-2020) I have been working for content marketing agencies leading projects for amongst others Mercedes (YouTube videos), Volkswagen, EU/Uefa (TV commercial) and Samsung (animated video). I have also worked as a freelance consultant for German newspaper TAZ and have been chief digital strategy at Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant.
