GET TO KNOW US
I come from sunny Mexico and have lived in Germany for a number of years. I’ve been a managing partner of Ka-Ve in Bad Vilbel since 2005.
I’m responsible for project handling, terminology management and quality assurance.
Initially, I studied political science at the Universidad Autonóma de México. After moving to France, I then studied French at the Université Le Mirail in Toulouse. This was supplemented by training to become a PDL-certified language trainer in Germany.
I like to travel around the world. And I love to meet new people, not only when I’m under a palm tree. I have swum with dolphins in Florida and have slept in the desert. What I found while travelling: the nature is simply magical and the people are open, friendly and helpful!
My motto for life: Be happy and enjoy life.
I am a “Northern Light”, as I originate from the North of Germany (Brunswick). I’ve been a managing partner of Ka-Ve in Bad Vilbel since 2005. I’m responsible for sales and finances, as well as terminology management.
I completed my studies at the Universität der Bundeswehr in Munich (degree in civil engineering) and the distance-learning university Hagen (business studies). During my work with the German armed forces, I was granted authorisation to teach in the subjects of mechanics, physics and commercial blasting techniques. My subsequent job as a project manager for hydraulic steel structures and head of purchasing meant that I became a frequent flyer. The construction sites I was visiting were generally not located next to the airports of the capital cities, so this allowed me to get to know many countries at first hand.
Still today, I have a great desire to travel. It really excites me to travel on my own initiative. I’m particularly interested in the architecture and people of the places I visit.
And then I have my great passion, photography, with which to capture it all.
