Many hats

The American dream. You grow based on the challenges you face. I am grateful for every single one of them.
Whatever the twist - you are aiming to sell. The purpose of offering any service, any good and any talent ultimately is the pursuit of money. Establish your value before you propose. Step one: Aesthetics. The buyers perception will influence a sale more than any other sense of hers. It opens the dialogue: No appeal means no trade. Put yourself in the best light achievable. More than once did I squeeze the last percent out of a revenue stream. I honed these skills along my way.

Freedom first was the mantra (this is the pre-parenthood). Looking back I refer to it as the creative phase, where flipcharts and meetings meant just as much as a sale.
There was a branding agency with a focus on sustainability, a solar company that went out to pave the way for green energy solutions and several web designs that clicked.

BSc Urban Design

The future is urban. Cities and regions are the driving forces and focal points for social developments. Thus, as our society is in a state of constant flux, so are our cities - neighborhoods are never "finished".

Moreover we weighed and implemented the results of said analyses in the form of strategic concepts.
