Networks unfold through successful dialogs and knowledge transfer. In this process, I support the participating countries of the creative potentials.

Why did you choose working for Wider Sense?

Change takes courage. Strengthening this courage together opens up paths to more sustainability and visions for the future.

What is a random fact about you?

I love mixtures – fusions – hybrids, in the arts, in science and philosophy, in cooking, in human interaction. This is my constant source of small and big challenges and surprises.
