Please tell us a bit about yourself!

My journey began when I co-founded a SaaS startup in 2020 where I navigated the challenges of building a B2B2C solution from scratch. My vision was to preserve local and cultural diversity while transforming how people consume and sustainably improve the lives of one and all. The European Innovation Council believed in our vision and secured a remarkable 2.3M funding within the first year. However, several unforeseen events led to an abrupt bankruptcy filing leaving me devastated by this news. Nevertheless, during that time I fell in love with product management and with the challenges that come with it. 

What's something you are passionate about?

I enjoy various creative ventures such as web and brand design and like to explore my artistic sense. Outside this creative bubble, I like traveling, rock climbing, and skiing.

What's the most memorable piece of advice you've received, and how has it influenced your life?

"There is no such thing as the right time" This one has resonated with the most over the past few years. Its simplicity applies to many areas of life. As someone who tries to meticulously plan out every detail and map out the best possible scenarios, this advice serves as a reminder to concentrate on what truly matters and encourages me to take leaps of faith.

What do you value in a new company / in a boss / in co-workers the most? 

I highly value openness, great communication, and appreciation within a company's culture. Also, a product can only get as good as the amount of passion that flows into it!
