My first professional career began in 1981 as a journalist. For more than 15 years I worked in various, also leading functions for newspapers, magazines, magazines as well as for radio and television. In the 1990s I gradually withdrew from journalism and since then have been advising and supporting public and private actors in various settings, with a focus on development cooperation, humanitarian aid and migration. For many years, my mandates have taken me regularly to developing countries as well as to disaster and conflict areas all over the world. My work focuses on advising on the strategic orientation of services, the assessment and critical monitoring of project projects, the development of aid structures, as well as communication and public relations.
