Northwestern Europe

  • Please tell us where you grew up.
    I was born in Berlin, Germany, and grew up in Perth, Australia
  • Where did you go to college?
    I went to university in the United Kingdom:
    • University of Bath – BSC (Hon) in Economics and Politics
    • University of Strathclyde – M.Litt in Journalism Studies
  • What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
    Photography, fine art, travel, Salsa!
  • What do you most enjoy doing with Account Development?
    Meeting customers in different countries and building relationships. And I am fascinating by seeing firsthand how many libraries in Europe are reacting and adapting - in so many different ways - to very similar challenges. And I love discussing and following hot topics in scholarly information, e.g. semantic web, social media, open-access.
