An award-winning writer and editor, I love writing about the world and helping others do the same. Passionate about sustainability and travel, my stories spark conversation and expand readers’ horizons. And I can tell yours, too.

If you’re stuck on how to tell your story or know what you want to say but not how to say it, I’m always taking on new clients who are doing good in the world — especially those working to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals or finding solutions to climate change. I can help you polish your prose or put pen to page for you. English isn’t your first language? No sweat, I can translate from German as well. Among my international copywriting and brand strategy clients are multinationals like adidas and DHL, non-profit development aid agencies including GIZ and DEval, policy advisors and thinktanks as well as NGOs. I’d love to support you as well.

My features and culture writing has appeared in Harper’s Bazaar, The Washington Post, The Cut, Marie Claire, Los Angeles Review of Books, The Art Newspaper, Artsy, Afar, Fodor’s Travel, Vox, and more.
