My way of working is characterized by dedication and careful planning – combined with great flexibility and healthy dashes of humor. People trust me because I never come along with hollow phrases or boilerplate solutions; I conscientiously listen to everyone and have a very good ear for nuances on both the factual and personal levels. I love clear words and the energy they generate.
