The Story So Far

I’m a product-obsessed founder from Germany, who grew up outside of a small town in Ireland. My love for technology began at the age of 14, when I bought my first book on python and started programming, which led me to setting up my first web design business at 16.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Web Engineering in 2011, I began my career in tech, working with high-growth startups. During the past 10 years I have worked with several Silicon Valley companies, supporting EMEA growth and expansion.

During this time I also founded two startups, spending over 5 years combined in CEO and CTO roles. I didn’t get it right the first time and made the tough decision to close down my first business in 2016, but this allowed me to collect all my learnings and in 2018 I had the opportunity to put all these learnings to use and co-founded Birch, my second startup, which unfortunately we decided to close down in 2019.

Between these two startups, I worked with ChangeX, a non-profit startup I joined as Head of Product. In 2017 I made the move to Munich to continue my adventure, where I founded a consultancy to focus my learning on Data Science.

Today, I am helping grow Fivetran in the DACH region as Alliance Manager.
