I’m a writer, journalist and publisher, originally from Bremen, Northern Germany, famous for its town musicians and the futuristic drop tower. I have lived in Berlin for more than twenty years now. Having studied German, English and Comparative Studies in Tübingen, Norwich and Berlin and graduated with an M.A. from the Freie Universität Berlin, I combine comprehensive knowledge of the cultural and literary sector with an interest in online media and a broader perspective on political and social issues.

In 2013 I founded the digital publisher mikrotext, for short digital reading and was awarded the Young Excellence Award of the German booksellers‘ and publishers‘ association in 2014 and the German Publishing Award in 2019 and in 2020.
