I am an international business professional who has traveled and lived on both sides of the Atlantic. My adult life began when I discovered a copy of Plato’s Apology of Socrates in my mother’s library. This began an obsession with such questions as: What is right? What is wrong? How do we know?

I first studied political science and philosophy. I then spent some time studying German and living as an exchange student in Germany, before embarking on a Master’s degree in international business. Following my studies, I started working for cleantech startup companies with an international focus: first a solar tech company in Canada, then an energy storage company in Norway.

The possibility to contribute to strategies and innovations with a positive environmental impact has been a great source of motivation in my professional life. Each step on this path had life-altering consequences, as I met people who profoundly influenced me. I also witnessed and experienced innumerable failures, and this ignited a thirst to understand how humans and organizations work.

I aspire to be a lifelong learner, to be a thinker and doer, someone who continuously bridges theory and practice. I have a fascination with the nuts and bolts of organizational life. Rather than rooting for pretentious grand theories, I am more interested in the innumerable small everyday mechanisms which add up to make organizations succeed or fail. That is why I made this website: to share some of my personal discoveries, insights and thoughts with a wider public.

I hope you will find it to your liking.
