“Whenever I was able to accompany my father to the workshops as a child, I would marvel wide-eyed at the numerous machines and production processes, be they milling machines or welding robots. To this day I am still fascinated by the process of an invention’s creation from the small molecule to the large-scale technical process. As a patent attorney, this fascination is part of my daily work, especially when I can be part of a development process.

In my leisure time I practice the Chinese martial art of Tai Chi Chuan. Concentration and focus are necessary to execute the movements in Tai Chi correctly, especially when practicing weapon forms. The ability to focus and concentrate helps me in my work for my clients, even when it gets stormy, which happens rather frequently in my beautiful city, Hamburg.”
