Childhood dream? To be a chef in a hotel. Cooking for people and travel the world.

One sentence highlighting your role: Working with people, solving issues looking for new solutions: this keeps my working day constantly busy, diverse and very interesting.

What do you enjoy the most about the student housing and micro-living sector? Creating a good environment for our student-tenants, so they can have a great time, during a very important period of their lives.

Did you study or lived abroad and if so, where? I studied hospitality at University, and thanks to that I have travelled a lot. The most amazing time for me was an exchange program as trainee in Florida for two years.

Where did you live as a student, and how different was the student accommodation landscape back then? I was living in Dortmund during my study time, in a shared apartment. The people I lived with and the community-vibe were awesome, we had a lot of fun! The conditions of the flat on the other hand, were pretty awful. I wish we had something like  Staytoo Apartments when I was a student!

Tell us something we don’t know about you? I love to visit festivals, go to concerts and I am a great soccer fan.

Among the many projects we have in the pipelines, what are you most excited about? For me each project is exciting because we can improve ourselves and what we deliver to our tenants, so we keep developing a better product each time.
