Why is sustainability in aviation so important to you?

I have two big passions in life - nature and traveling. Achieving the net-zero emission target is vital for both to exist in harmony. As we begin solving the problem for aviation it also supports solving the global challenge of green energy.

What excites you about the Clear Sky mission?

Clear Sky is about achieving a sustainable future through technology, innovation and collaboration. It’s a bold ambition, but I believe that with talent and dedication we can achieve it. As we move along the path towards sustainability in aviation, we will help make the world a better place.

How do you balance life with work?

I love what I do – so work is fun. I thrive working with new ideas, people and technologies, and driving results.  I also spend time playing sport, and love music and literature. All of this gives me balance and joy.

What is on your Spotify playlist right now?

Classical, blues, tango, rock - I just love music, no matter the genre.
