After my studies at Technical University in Berlin (Germany) I became an electrical engineer (Dipl.-Ing. Elektrotechnik), specialized on Radio Frequency, Antennas and EMC (1991). Having been working from 1989 until 1992 at Telefunken in Berlin, responsible for broadcasting antenna development (long, medium short wave and FM/TV), in 1992 I started working as a fulltime translator.
In 1998 I obtained my Private Pilot License and in 2009 the Commercial Pilot License. As a Commercial Pilot, I have deep knowledge of navigation, aerodynamics, meterology and other aviation-related subjects.
