I have studied economics and taxation in Berlin (Germany) and London (UK) until 2001.

In 2003 I have passed the written exams to achieve the official certification of a German tax advisor. On February 19, 2004 I also passed the oral exams and received the official certification letter.

Already during the studies I worked in a tax department of a middle-size holding company. From this my career started with Arthur Andersen in Berlin in early 2001.

Later in Ernst & Young (after the merger of Arthur Andersen with Ernst & Young) I specialized in the field of expatriate services for large, international engagements mainly in the automotive, transportation and electronic industries.

Besides this I am a known expert in the advice of special wage tax questions and giving support during tax field audits.

In 2014 I finished my career with Ernst & Young in the position of a Senior Manager.

I joined the ETL – European Tax and Law – group by leading today a large team of specialists in payroll services.
