I spend most of my time advising clients on strategic communications around antitrust situations, merger reviews, and competition policy as well as on many aspects of the European Green Deal.
I started my career as journalists in Germany, writing for The Wall Street Journal for ten years with focus on the energy, steel and aviation industries. I switched sides in 2014, initially at a boutique financial communications consultancy in Frankfurt (Charles Barker) before moving to Brussels in 2018.
My Proudest Achievements
I don’t think I have a single proudest achievement in my professional life, but it’s really rewarding every time clients express their gratitude for the work we’re doing. Recently a client commented on a piece of media coverage that we placed together, saying: “I think this is the most positive piece I’ve ever seen written about us.” It’s nice knowing that I helped achieve this for them.

My Favourite Brussels anecdote
Anytime I hear Belgians speak about the weather in Brussels, uttering sentences like: “You know it’s summer in Brussels because the rain is hot.” or “It’s going to be sunny this weekend – Belgian sunny.”
