I was a competitive athlete for over 20 years and played for many years professionally in the german 2. Basketball Bundesliga. In 2009 i was able to celebrate the championship and the associated promotion to the 1. Basketball Bundesliga with the Mitteldeutscher Basketball Club. I retired from professional basketball in summer 2016 and founded the sports agency Athleadz in the summer of the same year together with Fabian Zink. Our creed „Athleadz is family“ is the agency’s code of conduct and defines our approach.

I am a graduate in sports engineering and worked successfully for many years as „Business Development“ project manager in sports among others for the NBA. I’m technically well-versed and always try to get the absolute optimum out of all options in order to achieve the best possible result. ATHLEADZ is family and we pursue this approach in all fields with a lot of love, commitment and high quality standards. This successful spirit also helped me to become a professional basketball player and it is practiced daily at ATHLEADZ.
