I live in Berlin. For nearly 20 years I have worked at the intersection of HR and communications. I have run HR for communications agencies and design studios and I managed communications for HR teams.

I am passionate about all aspects of HR: from sourcing and recruiting to employee development and the intricacies of admin, legal and payroll – and I try to do it ethically. I strongly believe that hiring and keeping smart and self-aware people avoids 95 percent of any organisation’s problems.

this blog addresses HR stuff, the agency business model, the Berlin startup ecosystem, and the challenges they face.

I’ll also link to stuff I published elsewhere–for example over at medienrot where I’m sharing and commenting on a monthly reading list. I’m writing in German and/or English and try to call out bullshit on both.

Please feel free to get in touch or even just follow on Twitter, LinkedIn, or Xing. Or follow what I’m reading on PocketRefind, and Goodreads.
