I’m a writer, editor & communications professional based in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany.

My portfolio of travel and history writing includes guidebooks, guidebook translation into English and fact-checking for international publishers such as Lonely Planet Publications (Melbourne, London and Nashville), National Geographic Traveler (Washington, DC), Nelles Verlag (Munich) and Conde Nast Traveller (UK). My full-length work about Siberia (Siberia, A Cultural History, published by Oxford University Press/Signal Books) appeared in 2010. Key countries of focus are Germany, Austria and Russia. I’m a native English speaker and speak German fluently as well as excellent Russian.

Communication & Writing

I’ve worked for over 15 years as a language professional, including five years as an editor and communications expert for a global pharmaceuticals company based in Frankfurt am Main, with over 70,000 employees worldwide. I have also freelanced for clients in Germany as a communications and writing expert.
