Before becoming a journalist I took a Masters degree in Business Administration. I studied in Frankfurt, Paris and London which fitted in perfectly with my interest in people, languages and cultures from all over the globe. My work interviewing people of all walks of life took me from Berlin to Cologne, Beijing and back to London, where I worked as a radio correspondent for the German radio for 16 years, reporting on arts & cultural events as well as celebrities, music, sports and politics. Working for Snowflake Books means that I can combine my experience in writing with my love of books. After many years in the very fast paced world of breaking news I now enjoy being around people who care deeply about what they do, and it’s such a joy to watch a child pick up one of our books and a smile appears on their face...I connect with that.
