“Don’t judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes” (proverb from Cherokee tribe of Native Americans)

My own bicultural track record provides me with a unique understanding of both German and US culture. This foundation is augmented by my education in international business administration, extensive hands-on experience on living and working in Asia combined with over 10 years corporate experience in an international environment. Last but not least, as a trained intercultural business trainer and facilitator I have advanced my skills so as to develop and design benefit-oriented concepts for you.
