About me

I started working as a freelance journalist in July 2007, especially for documentaries/documentary series.

Before I had worked for many years as a staff member of the German Parliament, among others I did expert research for former German foreign minister Joschka Fischer.

I am an expert especially in politics, history, arts and sports. I have a Master's degree in political science and a passion for history and film.
