After a successful career in the corporate world, I “threw it all in” to start my own business in 2004 and I’ve not looked back since. I am now a serial entrepreneur, happily pursuing a portfolio career that allows me to combine my experience and expertise in communication, storytelling, and training with a dash of magic from my base in Innsbruck.
How I can help
Communication consulting for corporates
I offer a combination of marketing & communication services to help corporates – particularly those with a global audience – define a marketing strategy, create a plan, and implement traditional and digital marketing activities to raise profile and make an impact on the bottom line.

Science communication training & coaching
Scientists are key in helping to solve many of the 21st century’s problems, but unless they communicate their research clearly, concisely, and consistently to their peers, non-expert scientists, and non-experts, tapping into their solutions is difficult. I help scientists become effective communicators so that they can share their science.

Storytelling shows & performances
I create and perform custom storytelling shows, some to entertain and some to educate, often drawing on a mix of folklore, history, and science that resonate with adults and children alike. My storytelling and stage experience supports much of the communication work that I do, as well as the presentation and speaking workshops I offer.

Professional voice-over services
My communication work and storytelling has resulted in me creating a number of podcasts, and a side career in voice overs. I specialise in audiobook narration, guided tours (for museums, galleries, and historical sites), corporate film and footage, and online training.

Idea-to-reality coaching & support
I work with individuals who want to “start something” – a community, an event, a business, a blog, a non-profit – but aren’t sure how. Having done all of the above myself, and having helped others do the same, I now offer a combination support, skills & coaching, plus the occasional “push” to help people realise their dreams.

WordPress & website building training
I ran a creative agency for 14 years and WordPress was our tool of choice for designing and developing websites, online communities, and eshops. I run a number of WordPress training programmes and offer 1-to-1 support to help individuals and business build their WordPress skills.
