I'm a German native who emigrated to South Africa in 2002. I matriculated in 2004 and received my BA Degree from the University of Cape Town in 2008. I have worked at a German television company as a Client Consultant for 14 years, focusing on customer accounts and the technical support of German television subscribers in southern Africa. I was also responsible for the creation and translation of official documents and help the media team with the company’s social network presence.
I have a great passion for languages and music and fulfilled my dream of hosting my own radio show in 2010, as presenter of "German Vibes and Tunes" at Radio Helderberg 93.6fm on Sundays. Although I had to give up the show due to time constraints, I have presented temporarily until early 2016 and am still involved as a voice-over artist for radio ads or eLearning programs.
Since mid-2016, I have also been working as a freelancer to assist clients from all over the world with their German language needs, from translating to scriptwriting and tutoring. I believe that a language can only be alive when it's actively spoken, and I, therefore, focus a lot on conversation and making my students become more confident when speaking, encouraging them to express and debate their views on everything from current topics to personal opinions.
