I have a diploma degree in landscape use and conservation and professional experience in landscape planning, botany, tree inspection, biotope mapping and environmental education. I have also worked in organic gardening for two years.
I still retain close ties to Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development and am a board member of a local conservancy association.
As an amateur musician, cinema lover and occasional writer of fiction, I take an interest in all manifestations of the visual and performing arts.
I regularly work as a translator for a film festival and a festival of classical music. In addition, I gave English courses for graphic designers from 2016-18.
Changes and developments in civil society are often promoted by organisations in the so-called Third Sector.
I have worked for German and British NGOs on projects focused on values, education and participation. In my hometown, I support a local transition town initiative.
