Hey, thank you for visiting my profile! Let me introduce myself a bit :)

Most of the times I feel like beeing something like the ultimate generalist. It's not that there is nothing I am an expert in, I just find it difficult to point at a specific academic field or corporate function. 

From my academic and - although rather little - professional background I became very good in adapting, learning, and putting questions in the perspective of mutliple viewpoints. 

My bachelor degree almost consisted of a full new set of lectures and practical applications each semester, ranging from operations research to international management and marketing and sales.

And the master program I am currently taking makes it even worse, putting everything in the context of building companies! Fortunately, I like that very much! :)

Where I perform best is at the very early stages of a startup. When working in a team, I often find myself to be a mediator between different opposing positions, avoiding circular discussions. So joining and building a team as a co-founder is definitely something I am more than happy to do. 

The whole misery started when I was born in Germany. There I did my bachelor's including an exchange in the Basque Country. I truly believe in the strength of cultural diversity, although it is very hard to leverage. But this is the reason I wanted to do my whole master degree in a foreign country, and I ended up in the beautiful Norway. 

Here I live, learn Norwegian, study and am so fortunate to have the possibility to go out there and build a company as part of my studies. 

I am looking forward to getting into contact with open minded and honest people who want to move something :)
