Membership and Certificates
I am certified by TÜV as a Functional Safety Professional for ISO 26262.
From 2000 to 2007 I was active at the Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW). I regularly supported the highway patrol in the Stuttgart area with technical and first aid. I participated trainings by UNHCR, UNJLC, UNOCHA and EU as support staff or acting as a refugee in the simulations. I was trained as a paramedical assistant and for leadership positions in domestic and international missions. My last assignment was what is I think best translated with platoon leader.
I love sailing and rock climbing.
