This is me
Hi, nice to meet you. After more than a decade in leading positions as a tech journalist, my keynotes & moderation topics are digitization, innovation, technology and startups. Please contact me here, if you would like to book me as a moderator or speaker.
Today, I am also the co-founder and partner of FutureStory, a strategic future and branding consultancy in Berlin, Germany. We help people and organizations do better business with purpose- and future-driven brand strategies.
I was the Editor-in-Chief and Head of WIRED Germany (2014-2018), the Editor-in-Chief of Germany’s leading startup-magazine gruenderszene.de (2013-2014) and the founder of the German business-startup-magazine Business Punk (2009-2013). In these roles I was considered one of the most important startup journalists in Germany.
