Childhood dream:  Become the world’s greatest detective!

One sentence highlighting your current role: Numbers crunching and provide liquidity to our funds to keep engines going.

What do you enjoy the most about the student housing and micro-living sector? To be part of a whole new world of accommodation that is far more than just living. New concepts are set up now that will prevail for decades and totally change our way of living and working together.

Did you study or lived abroad and if so, where? Despite a short break that took me to Ireland, I always studied beside having a job. Therefore although I always got paid, I somehow missed the adventurous side of studying.

Where did you live as a student, and how different was the student accommodation landscape back then? I cannot really remember, old styles accommodation, but I early met a girl who owned a flat …(and we are still a couple, by the way!)

Tell us something we don’t know about you? I like it hot and usually have any kind of chilli sauce in all of my meals.

Among the many projects we have in the pipelines, what are you most excited about? I am hoping to see the first project in my hometown Hamburg in short term.
