1) What are your responsibilities for the #gamesweekberlin/what do you do at the #gamesweekberlin 2018?
I jumped in at Booster Space as the new COO mid of March, so the right time to get things done for #gamesweekberlin. Solving problems, holding strings together and staying on top of things are the most popular tasks for me this year.

2) Which event are you most looking forward to and why?
Getting to know the challenges and insights behind #gamesweekberlin this year is the most exciting part for me.
Besides being part of the gamesweekberlin team for the first time, I’m really looking forward to Medienpreis Games, the new award show we’re organizing this year for the first time. I’m also excited about the A.MAZE exhibition.

3) What’s your favorite game you played this year?

Looking for a flat in Berlin, and yes, I won. 🙂
