About me

I'm a content strategist with a hybrid background across editorial, digital and creative. Throughout my career I’ve held a bunch of exciting positions in both startup and political communications, in a bunch of exciting cities like Berlin, Vienna and Budapest. I’ve helped early-stage businesses get off the ground, as well as more established companies position their brand and strengthen their voice. Currently, I work as editor-in-chief at Factory Berlin — a startup campus home to companies like SoundCloud, Twitter, Uber; as well as Google’s main partner in Germany. I joined the team at an exciting phase of growth. This has allowed me to shape the company’s brand and work independently on large-scale projects. My daily activities involve producing high-quality copy and coordinating visual and audio content, innovating across platforms. I also run and oversee Factory’s in-house magazine from the conceptualization of stories to execution.
