As a professional copywriter and writer in Berlin I am cooperating with business and sales clients. In the fields of sustainable lifestyle, food, fitness and literature I support them in establishing and maintaining long-term business relationships with their customers through optimized texts that perfectly match their brand(s). Taking care of the worthful things!

I was born in 1987 – long time before I planned my business as a freelance writer. Between prefabricated buildings and rather provincial landscapes I discovered my love for literature and writing. Everything started with handwritten poems which I then typewrote on the computer and saved on floppy disks. Search engine texts and high-speed laptops were, back then in 2002, something I did not have the faintest idea of …

What happened soon after? Needless to say, all of that changed significantly over the years to come. In order to gain more life experience, I decided to move to Erfurt where I began to study Literary Studies. There, I co-found  “wortwuchs”, a literary journal we had laboriously patched together. Taking a stroll down memory lane today, I do admit that this does sound somewhat crazy. After working at the editorial office, I was yearning for more freedom and wanted to explore something entirely different and new.

My wanderlust was satisfied when I arrived in Leipzig, where I enrolled in the Creative Writing M.A. Program at the renowned German Institute for Literature. This entailed the following: further engagement with texts of all kinds and forms; experimenting with new styles of writing; typing, tearing pages, throwing them away and starting anew; and, not to forget: studying, studying, studying. My goal was to master every conceivable style of writing. And yet, to me this did not seem to be enough, so I moved to Belgium to work at the Goethe Institute Brussels. By that time, I had already written for blogs, newspapers, magazines and websites.

Where did I end up? In 2014, I moved all the way up to river Spree, to Berlin where I worked as a professional Copywriter and Content Manager for several major agencies. Now, my quest for freedom is finally completed: Since 2017, I have been working as a freelance editor.  Today, I am proud to demonstrate my professional knowledge in the fields of Social Media Marketing, Content Marketing, Advertising and Creative Writing. Here you can read more about my focal points.
