My profession.

I’m a language professional by trade. I would even call myself a mediator. Even if that might sound odd or unfamiliar, it’s as precise a description of my daily work as I can find. As an interpreter, translator or language teacher you don’t just throw around more or less foreign words all day long. I would rather say I mediate: between different languages and cultures, ideas and concepts, between diverging interests and goals, and not least between brain-wrecking grammar and confused language learners. I’m a professional mediator, and as such I offer language-related services that yield concrete results.

My background.

My life has revolved around languages and cultural exchange for the best part of the last decade. Born and raised in a quiet town located in the West German region of Westphalia, I decided to move to Scotland for four years in order to study. At the University of Aberdeen, I completed an MA (Hons) in European Studies, focused mainly on social sciences, French and Spanish. What I’ve taken away above all from my stay on the British Isles is a deep interest in the Anglo-Saxon world, a lot of cultural expertise and– a new first language. To all intents and purposes, English has become my second skin. Besides, I used the time in Scotland to discover and expand my teaching skills. I qualified as a teacher of English as a foreign language and taught with a London-based English language school. By now, I’m also a qualified German teacher, thoroughly enjoying getting in touch with learners from all over the world.

What I stand for.

After my graduation in Scotland I decided to return to Germany in order to study an MA in Conference Interpreting at Cologne University of Applied Sciences (now called TH Köln). In the process, I’ve become a specialist language mediator. Today, you can benefit from my German, English, French and Spanish language proficiency, my communication skills and my wide-ranging knowledge in the areas of politics, society, intercultural communication and Europe.
