Marketers figure out how to reach people who really need the product and how to convert them into customers.
— Sean Ellis, Co-Founder of Qualaroo
 

I am passionate about marketing. I really enjoy figuring out the problems and needs of people, and matching them with the best solutions. Technology is the perfect vehicle for building bridges between companies and customers, and the increasing amount and type of available data supports my mission.

The tech industry is a fast-paced environment that rapidly innovates and seeks new answers to significant difficulties. This is fascinating, and I enjoy living in the San Francisco Bay Area with its high density of new ventures. The entrepreneurial spirit is inspiring, and the number and diversity of smart people is motivating.

I grew up in Germany and moved to California in early 2010. I call the world my home, and have recently returned from a six-month backpacking sabbatical across Asia. My motto is 'the sky's the limit', and I strongly believe that learning new things and building meaningful relationships is the reason why we are here on this planet.
