From 1975 to 2015 I worked at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. My last posting was ambassador accredited to the Republic of Serbia as well as to Montenegro. Previously I was director of the Western Hemisphere Directorate, and before that ambassador to the Slovak Republic.

Informed by two postings at the Directorate for European Integration and postings in Warsaw, Bratislava and Belgrade I am writing a book about the process of accession negotiations to the European Union.
