About

Wow, have I truly been a journalist for more than 20 years already? Time flies by… Though, one thing I can say with absolute certainty today: I am truly having the best job in the world! I can travel, discover new corners and cultures of the world, always get to know exciting people and grill some of the celebrities that used to be my idols when I was younger. For reports, portraits and interviews, I’ve already been in Shanghai, Los Angeles or Cape Town.

As a freelancer I’ve already written for media titles such as STERN, PLAYBOY, BRIGITTE, COLOR, MAX or MEN’S HEALTH amongst others. Staying with Gruner + Jahr as a GALA reporter for nine years, I consolidated my passion for people journalism. After a trip into the world of corporate publishing at HAVAS Worldwide, creating and issuing two entirely new customer magazines, I am now working as a freelance journalist again.

At an awardshow afterparty, Karolina Kurkova and I get down to a pretty wild dance, causing her to lose one of her earrings - a precious family heirloom. Fortunately, the piece was quickly found again after everyone got down on their knees looking for it.

Insider fitness and nutrition tips by Hugh Jackman, who, with a twinkle in the eye, also wants to animate to an arm-wrestling contest. Not wanting to lose my face, I politely decline.
