He has a Bachelor’s in Spanish and German from the University of Dayton (in Ohio) and a Master’s (“Diplom”) in environmental engineering from the Universität Rostock (in Germany). In 2009, he moved to Beijing, China, where he lived and worked for six years, mainly in environmental and commercial real estate fields.
