I have been writing articles for local and regional newspapers in Germany, both in English and German since 2002. When I moved to the UK in 2011, I started reviewing theatre for various publications such as OneStopArts and Exeunt Magazine mainly to motivate myself to not just consume but also think about the stuff I saw. In 2015, the Theatertreffen Berlin invited me to its International Forum as part of it critical festival coverage, the Theatertreffen blog. Since then I have had reviews and features published on The List and The Stage.
In Germany I have worked as Assistant Director/Dramaturg and in the UK as a producer and arts admin on various theatre productions, musicals and performing arts projects.
I also love getting the best out of other people’s writing. Editing and translation projects I work on include:
The Web Comic Tales from the Couch as translator and editor
The App Game The Innsmouth Case currently in development by the Indie Robot Pumpkin.
Freelance Communications Officer at Breathe Arts Health Research, an inspiring not-for-profit social enterprise in arts and health.
Peer Review and Marking in the academic context.
I hold a Master’s degree in Media and Cultural Analysis from Düsseldorf University and am an AHRC-funded PhD candidate at King’s College London and the Humboldt University Berlin working on an interdisciplinary project on monsters and contemporary German literature.
