Personal Information: 
Berlin, Germany

I am a PR/communications/marketing professional with a strong background in journalism and media. After working as a journalist at some of Austria's major publishing companies I got the chance to step into the startup industry, where I was offered a position as marketing communications and new business development manager at the Vienna based IT-startup epiqo. Within this role I helped set up the company's new venture, STARTUS.cc, a european wide startup job and co-founder network. There, I was also working as editor in chief and author at STARTUS Magazine, an english online magazine focused on startups and entrepreneurship. After that I've decided to spend some time in Berlin where I'm now working as a PR and Communications manager for RCKT Communications (Rocket Internet), where I'm involved in setting up and executing communication strategies for international startups founded by Rocket Internet as well as external clients. 
I love working in a creative, dynamic and driven international environment - my core expertise is that I'm a passionate writer who is experienced in journalism, marketing, PR, communications, brand management and new business development. I'm now based in Berlin and Vienna.
