Biography

Andrea joined the MCO team in 2018 as Finance Manager.

Growing up in Berlin in a music-loving family, she would listen to her father presenting classical music on the radio while herself engaging in singing, dancing, and playing the cello and the piano.
Andrea studied Italian and Musicology in Berlin and Venice and started out as a journalist for Märkische Allgemeine newspaper in Potsdam. Noticing more and more that she had an inclination for numbers and administrative work, she eventually retrained in the field of accounting and tax law.

In working with the MCO, Andrea is happy to encounter the unique opportunity of combining what she loves most with what she hopes to do best.
