I’ve been at Euro London since:  March 2004

About me: Placed by Euro London as a fresh Law & German graduate in 2001; this took me back to Germany (Düsseldorf) and gave me the skills and knowledge necessary to build a career here when returning to London in 2004. I remain a cricket and beer enthusiast but brewing kit and bat and ball are in storage while the children are small.

Fun fact: I once appeared on prime time Saturday night TV in Lederhosen as part of a German dance troupe
