After completing my Abitur at Köln Kolleg, I was faced with a decision between continuing to work as an English teacher, something I really enjoyed doing but found little career prospects, and following a path that requires intense, focused study, but with scope for massive positive impact.

Gunter Pauli gave a talk on ABC Radio National’s Big Ideas about what later became accepted as a report to the Club of Rome, The Blue Economy. I realised there was so much more that we could do for our planet while financially empowering citizens all over the world.

It was time for me to build the technical skills required to make positive change.

Right now I am enrolled at the TH Köln, University of Applied Sciences in their Bachelor of Engineering Management programme. My current stats can be seen here.
