What fascinates you about your job?

I can combine my hobby, which I’m passionate about, with my occupational knowledge. I love the sport and this type of work, combining these two is a dream come true for me.

What do you want to achieve with the LMC?

I would like the LMC to progress, to improve it by all means necessary. I want to optimize processes and use my knowledge from being a table tennis player as well as a industrial business managment assistant.

What does success mean to you?

Doing a competent job, being happy, living a fullfilled life and being in harmony with yourself. You can find success everywhere, no matter how tiny.

Why do you love table tennis?

Table tennis has always been the only sport that really fascinated me. I tried many others, but none had me hooked like table tennis.
It is really fast, you don’t have much reaction time and you have to be smart and fit as well to compete on a top-level. But besides from that the best is for me that there are never two rallys alike. It’s always a different scenario and that keeps it always interesting, be it watching or playing table tennis, it never gets boring.
