Credentials

Biography

Based in Zurich, I'm now working as a Digital Media Consultant for Swisscom Event & Media Solutions, since World Television was acquired on October 1st, 2015. A former Think Tank, World Television is now a creative digital media agency- a leader in webstreaming technology in B2B corporate communications.

I'm agile, dynamic, results-driven, customer-focused and a teamplayer.  I have lived and worked in several cities and countries, including, New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Geneva and now Zurich. I have fifteen years of experience managing big sales & marketing campaigns with key account responsibilities. Since discovering Scrum and becoming certified by Jeff Sutherland, I feel the difference in the way we work on a daily basis. No matter the industry.

I feel lucky to have made a successful career transition to the world of agility and information technology. Some answers, lots of new ideas and possible solutions presented themselves in a Harvard Summer School course "E-Commerce Strategy" back in 2005. I was hooked... and more than a decade later I'm still loving learning about new technology everyday.
