I have been baking since I was three or four years old. Today, I possess more books and magazines about baking than any other area of interest. Unfortunately, my whole environment has to suffer heavily from my baking addiction - friends, family and colleagues. Chocolate lovers, I am so happy to have you - otherwise I would need to eat it all up... how aweful!
Check out the latest chocolate battles under my kitchenmaids facebook channel.
Sometimes I have more crazy ideas per day than cups of coffee. This is usually when I dig out my black book that secures all my ideas, plans and future world visions. Among these ideas are some worth sharing.
At the age of 15 I invented a new thingy that helps you no longer pouring your milk all over the place when opening the silly milk cartons. I thought of a rounded plastic spout, that I called "Ausgußplastik", that can easily be put on a milk carton (and of course be closed), so that milk disasters are a thing of the past. In an enhanced version I also developed a machine-driven milk pump with a valve that you can nowadays find in almost every coffee machine. What a pity that I did not file a patent back then.
Younger ideas include some scribbles about my own cupcake cafe, a new service where you can order no longer single furniture, but fully furnished rooms for your beloved home, an imaginary friends' club and a seal for pet-friendly products. You have no clue how many pet unfriendly-products are out there on the market. If you want to know more, get in touch!
Interior design is another bad habbit of mine. In former times I was craving for rearranging the furniture at least every three month. It has got a bit better in recent years so that today I only need to decorate differently or paint a wall or two every now and then. Huge progress, you see? In 2012 I studied interior design for one year to give my hobby a solid base. The result: a certificate and the feeling that everything at home just looks ugly, which brought me to shop a whole new bunch of chairs, a sofa, a carpet,...
Now, a couple years later, I am fine with having white walls only and a strict set of furniture. I just stumbled upon one of my first posts on COUCH magazine, where I uploaded my crazy interior in 2012. It is really ridiculous that I got 20,000 likes for this! I have no clue how we could look at that wall color for more than a split second...
At the age of 20 one of my former bosses approached me with an idea – to create a new print magazine for an industry that only had one single magazine available on the market: the diamond business. I said yes and led the conception and launch of a new magazine in the area of industrial diamonds.
Now don’t make the mistake and think of industrial diamonds as the ones sung about by Marilyn Monroe. They are totally black, do not have a diamond cut and simply look like nothing. But nevertheless – within 6 month the first magazine was out on the German-speaking market, even one week before my self-set final deadline.
I am still a bit proud having done such an uncommon project, that required quite a straight project-management with tight deadlines in my early days. After the launch I left the project, as my part was done.
The magazine still exists after more than 10 years – as well as the Marilyn Monroe-diamond that I got from my former boss . Have a look at it, if you like: www.diamond-business.info
Finally the dream came true and I had my falconry day. A day full of owls, eagles and falcons.
