“We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do THE OTHER THINGS, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win…”

John F. Kennedy

Who I am…

  • These are the buzzwords: IPTV, iTV, eTV, VoD, digital TV, pay TV, EPG, UI, set-top-boxes, HFC, FTTH, OTT, tv/video oriented mobile apps and of course CONTENT!
  • I am a product manager that understands YOU, the client – just as well as your vendors.
  • I am a product manager with technical skills that allow me to communicate efficiently with engineers – but I am neither an engineer nor a system architect.
  • I am involved in UI and graphic design – but I am not a graphic designer.
  • I am involved in business cases – but I am not a controller.
  • I communicate on management level as well as working level.


My focus is on YOU, your customers, your products, your content and on great user interfaces. My goal is getting the best products done in time and in budget with the resources available.
