I was born and raised in Germany and always had the strong desire to explore the world and understand other cultures. Following several years in the UK, Spain and Hong Kong I now live in Houston, Texas.

When I decided at 45 to do my MBA, I spent hours and hours researching U.S. universities and finally landed on Duke. Now I look back and wonder how there ever could have been another choice. Team Fuqua is a reflection of my values and has become a big part of my life.

I work in the legal industry and oversee the two Texan offices of Kirkland & Ellis. I still love to travel and explore different cultures.
