Listen, observe, think, check,
write, talk, listen…

My articles appear in leading German media like GEO magazine, ZEIT Science Magazine and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, as well as on Yale E360 and in other media outlets. I’m interested in everything that’s alive, in science, environment, politics, culture, Anthropocene, technology and how they are all connected. I like to explore new topics as an exercise in lifelong learning and I will not stick to positions that are no longer tenable. I try to listen more carefully and observe more sharply all the time, to sharpen my senses. Especially with online reporting happening behind glass, journalism needs to employ all senses and connect with real people. My work in the science and culture section of Frank Schirrmacher at Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung 2001-2008 still inspires me. I have organized a seminar about “chances and risks of new media” in 1984 and have been working as a journalist since the late 1980s, with evolutionary breakthroughs happening in New Zealand’s old-growth forests, in Germany’s former government district in Bonn, in an office next to the movie critic Michael Althen and at DER SPIEGEL. The only section I haven’t written for is the sports section. But who knows what will happen next.
