What is the most fun thing about your job?

The interaction with the audience: Because I LOVE my audience, I don’t like the people!

In what country would you like to live and why?

Apart from Bavaria, the most beautiful country in the world, if I had to choose one, then in Italy.

What does your role as brand ambassador mean to you?

Because GOLDSTEIG is a milk cooperative, in a way I am directly representing the farmers and the farming community in the things I do in my role as brand ambassador, and it is an honour for me to do it.

How do you relax in your free time?

By simply doing nothing, in Bavaria we say "Kaasweckerl-Schaun".

When do you turn off your mobile phone?

Always on Sundays and when I am enjoying a meal with friends.

What role does milk play in your life?

I travel a lot and that is why I only buy things that keep for a long time and that I always find tasty, that means that in addition to Prosecco, I also have milk, cheese and yoghurt at home.
