Half Swiss, half Swedish.

Born with the fascination of time.

Some call me a Key Note Speaker, an artist, a wild one with heart, and I CREATE.

I create thoughts and ideas.

I create speeches.

I create products.

I create art. 

I don't give any advice, I tell stories and somehow, these stories touch others.

Thanks to my mindset and style of life, I have a good life.

I'm a Keynote Speaker. A creator. An Icebather. A wild one with heart.

Last Update: 26th of June 2023


I am based in Arosa, Switzerland, but I try to visit my sister & Co. at my other home, Sweden, as much as possible. I do a lot of ice bathing and cross-country skiing in winter, and I would like to dive under the ice in a frozen lake without a wetsuit or oxygen mask. I hear you, my dear friends out there! No worries, winter is over... which means; back to Golf and regular Swimming. It's less dangerous.

I am a Keynote Speaker, a good storyteller and someone who likes to ask questions and talk about time and life and everything that goes in there. 


I was happy when the last year ended. So many things had happened. I was losing the two men I loved the most: the death of Dad— and the departure of my husband. I must admit, I was pretty tired of 2022. 

So, I was happy to start the new year with new ideas, thoughts and an ongoing creativity flow. Luckily, my creativity never fails me.

The motto is: Focus. Create. Play.


MY APPROACH for the second half of 2023

Let me share them with you:

  • turning the weaknesses that limit me into strengths by developing skills I want to become better at

  • exploring the limits of my capabilities because I am pretty sure that I am only using a small percentage of my capabilities

  • be more courageous and bolder because I have nothing to lose



I love my work. It's what I do and who I am. 

Someone asked me a few days ago: "What would you do if you wouldn't do what you do right now?"

I thought. And I thought. And I thought. 

The answer is: "I would exactly do what I am doing right now." 


I am still in love with my podcast. I might have a few guests on it in the future. Let me surprise you. 

The new episode is online every Thursday!
