Copywriting, journalism, political strategy and social work. Wherever words can make a difference, Philipp has already been there. He learned his craft from an early age: Even as a child, Philipp liked to talk. Ideally, as he says himself: “A lot, quickly and without being asked.” To be fair, not much has changed to this day.

Philipp’s professional career not only took him through various industries, but also drew him abroad. After professional excursions to Brussels and Kathmandu and several years in Berlin, the Master of International Studies returned to Vienna. Now Philipp also graces our office and supports our clients with his expertise and eloquence.
