I was born on 27.11.1976.
At the age of seven I began my adventure with tennis and since then I have been an avid tennis player.
I went for two years to study in America, which was made possible thanks to a grant I received from Tenisowemu. After my graduation, I returned to Germany, got a job at the Club TC Alsterquelle and began my career as a coach. I quickly obtained the license of a manager. In 2004, I passed all the tests of the German Association of Tennis and became a certified coach.
In the years 2003/2004 for 18 months I took care of Angelique Kerber during her first steps on the WTA Tour. Together we cooperated during her Junior Grand Slam tournaments and gained first points in the WTA ranking.
Then I started working at the Schleswig Holstein Club as a full-time coach. Since 2005, I had worked hard in the club TC RW Wahlstedt, where I coached the first team in the Women’s League of German 1. I was responsible for daily workouts, trips to tournaments and preparation for the season.
In the middle of 2011, in addition to my work in Wahlstedt und Marne, I began travelling to tournaments with Angelique Kerber. This collaboration has clearly strengthened over time.
Currently I am Angelique’s coach.
