I'm an executive coach and consultant using human-centered design to drive innovation and communication.


Actor turned TV-presenter turned coach

In everything I do, people are always at the center of my work.

Nothing excites me more than fresh ideas paired with effective visual communication. I empower innovators worldwide to devise innovative business concepts and present them compellingly.

At 18, I entered the television industry as an actor and presenter, captivating millions over the years. I hosted youth shows for RTL, Europe's largest broadcaster, sharing the stage with co-hosts like Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, and renowned German comedian Helge Schneider. During my extensive tenure at RTL, I received journalistic training from the prestigious Adolf Grimme Institut. My acting portfolio spans roles in movies, sitcoms, and crime series across the major German TV networks.

After leaving television, I spent three years as an acting coach, integrating training from American storytelling principles and Russian acting techniques.

The actors I mentored achieved success in auditions and secured roles in movies and plays. In 2009, I became involved with the TED event series. Drawing on my background as a professional show host, actor, and acting coach, I prepared over 350 speakers for TEDx conferences in Berlin, Munich, and Hamburg. Concurrently, I ventured into academia, joining the coaching team at Potsdam's School of Design Thinking and instructing at the Berlin Design Academy.

In 2012, I founded PEAK, an agency specializing in innovation and communication.

My next step naturally led me to the startup world. In 2014, I joined Berlin’s Axel Springer Plug and Play Accelerator. There, I designed and led a three-month pitch design and coaching program, assisting founders and entrepreneurs in crafting a concise, five-minute pitch for potential investors working with hundreds of startups.

With nearly two decades of experience as a professional presenter, consultant, and coach, I've formulated my own methodology to help individuals craft concise pitch presentations or inspirational speeches in the renowned TED style which I have recorded in my book "Beyond the Obvious".

I have been a speaker at numerous significant conferences in the tech, startup, and digital business sectors across the DACH region.
