Frankfurt is for me …
… has always been a great opportunity.
What do you love most about your job?
Dealing professionally with unprofessional things such as feelings, words, images,…
Where do you get your ideas from?
I’m pretty good at staying on top of things. Only if we can stand being bad can we become really good.
My lunch break …
… I often spend it in Texas. We have a cook. It’s especially nice when we have visitors.
What trends do you think we will see this year?
Digitalization – that’s not difficult to see at first, and then again it is.
What else can we still learn?
I hope a lot because I love to change. At the moment I’m learning to do handstands and write a book.
You should definitely do that in Frankfurt …
Go to the train station district. I especially like to be shaved in the Golden Scissors. If you don’t have a beard, you can drink a coffee or eat a fish soup opposite and observe the people.
