I am an England-based journalist with ten years of experience in the media. My focus is on print and online newspapers. I had training in narrative as well as mobile storytelling.

I am the England-correspondent for the Austrian daily newspaper Kurier. I cover political and royal affairs as well as social phenomena and cultural events. My articles can be found here. For the Kurier’s magazine supplement Freizeit, I cover Travel and Zeitgeist pieces. These articles can be found here. I have also written for the daily newspaper Der Standard or the Moment-Magazin.

Additionally, I am contributing to regional English magazines like Hampshire Life, Dorset Life or In Common.

For the Austrian magazine Land & Leut, I am currently writing a column about inspiring Austrian female pioneers like Mitzi Langer, who was the first ever woman to take part in a ski race, or Yella Hertzka, who built the first garden school for women in the Austrian empire.

From February 2013 until January 2021, I worked in the Panorama section of the Austrian daily newspaper Kurier. I pitched for, researched and wrote article about one of the most beautiful cities in the world: Vienna.

Being a journalist is a privilege. When I stood outside a Vienna retirement home on a cold February afternoon in 2013 – my first assignment as a journalist for the Kurier –, filled with stories of old people’s lives, their thoughts, their dreams, their experiences, I felt an intangible excitement. I knew I was honoured with information I had only received so that I could tell others about it. I felt a responsibility to make a difference in other people’s life, because I could tell them truths, they would not come across otherwise. And I realised I would be able to write stories that could, hopefully, inspire the readers, broaden their horizon, move them and help them see the world differently. I have been trying to achieve this ever since.
