I’ve been around since 1988 and Vienna is my home. I studied German language and literature, news journalism and international affairs, worked in bookstores, concert venues and as a German teacher for adults. I used to be a journalist and then a policy advisor covering foreign and European Affairs, defence, migration and development cooperation in the Austrian Parliament (for the liberals).

Today, I am the Head of Communications at the European Forum Alpbach. I am also the co-host of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation’s security podcast „The Defence Café“. Moreover, friends in Bosnia called me „the Balkans‘ wingwoman“ and I do everything in my power to deserve that honourable title.

You can hire me to consult on any of the topics listed above and for copywriting and ghostwriting jobs, as well as for trainings and workshops for your organisation.
