Special skillsI also write scripts myself, I am also a musician and also compose songs and have often composed film music for films.

I do a lot of sports. Several years ago, I was running a semi-professional level marathon and did some triathlons. At the triathlon also twice the Ironman.

In addition, in my previous professional life, in addition to my involvement in the family business, I worked with wine corks and even operated an online platform and sold wines over the Internet - so I dare to call myself a wine connoisseur.
