Katharina is passionate about writing. Crafting sentences and stories has been her signature skill since early school days. The essence of what defines her today has evolved from writing. And it came with some superlatives: from driving off the world’s highest tee in South Africa to attending the world’s longest concert of a solo artist (27 hours, no sleep) in Paris. She likes to challenge herself and as a result is a late-starter in horse riding (early 20s), skiing and golfing (early 30s). Recently, she joined an ambitious soul and gospel choir. She loves music, tennis, literature - and above all spending time with her ten year old daughter and exploring the world through her eyes.
