Intro

What I am all about.

Since my studies, I'm taken with the question how to shape and manage a more sustainable urban future. That lead me to ECOURBANHUB®. I'm founder and owner of ECOURBANHUB® and researching, writing and editing specialist articles about green building, sustainable transport, urban climate, clean energy, urban farming, and urban planning. Furthermore, I'm striving to find and develop new offers, opportunities and solutions. I'm hunting for the latest technology solutions, state-of-the-art projects as well as interview and media partners. Since the foundation, I published dozens of specialist articles in German and English language - always focused on sustainable urbanization. Sometimes, I'm even travelling around the world to get an own view on these matters.

Right now, am working as Project Manager at Tilia GmbH in Germany, where I'm actively involved in the realization of energetic optimization projects of city districts. Additionally, I'm responsible for the development of new energy-related services for industrial and communal customers.
