Your good deed...
For every training session you book, I'll host a pro bono seminar at a social institution or a local community project of your choice.
My pro bono seminars empower those who lack access to regular training opportunities. In the past, I've conducted these free sessions at various social institutions and with different groups in various countries around the globe.
By booking a training session, you offer others the chance to enhance their skills and broaden their horizons. Together, we will make a positive impact!
Everyday Insights. Practical Wisdom. Clear Understanding.

Allow me to introduce myself.
I have quite a diverse international background: Born in 1984 in Odessa, Ukraine, I came to Germany via Israel as a child. I was raised in Münster, intellectually shaped in London, and I am currently happily settled in Berlin.
Along the way, I have lived in 4 countries and have had the opportunity to research at the Vatican Library as a postdoc and to work as an extra for Hollywood films while writing my Ph.D. in England.
Each year, I learn three new skills. I firmly believe humour is one of the highest forms of intelligence, and I am intrigued by all flow activities. If you'd like to know more, just get in touch!
