About me

  • I have over 15 years of experience in communication and marketing. I have also worked as a university professor of psychology, as a coach and a therapist. I like encouraging people to maximize the use of their potential.
  • I’ll provide support anytime you need to further your project with regards to PR and marketing. You can also book me for coaching. I believe that dialogue and the right questions can point you in the right direction when looking for your own way to success.
  • I consider Facebook to be the innovation of the century but as with any other technical progress, it is important that it remains a good servant rather than becoming a bad master. It should only complete the process of sharing and connecting with other people but should never replace the true way of doing things – face to face.

  • I’m fascinated by the speed of development of technical gadgets – it makes me more aware of the importance of people focusing on their personal development so they can control them in a smart way and not have it be the other way around.
