I’m a wordsmith, content wizard, and creative muse intrigued by the endless hues that make up the stories of our human existence. The common thread that runs throughout my work — as a freelance writer, web designer, environmental advocate, and recording artist — is the desire to make our home planet just a bit kinder, more equitable and livable for all its inhabitants.
As an explorer of ecology from micro-level (soil) to human-scale (cities) to macro-level (cosmos), my approach to creating meaningful narratives is rooted in the understanding that everything is connected and the most fertile ground is often found in the spaces between. Whether it’s writing a feature article for a major publication or designing a website for a client, the goal is to shape the diverse pieces of the puzzle into a cohesive whole.
This holistic disposition is perhaps best elucidated by my multicultural background as a native German living in America and the diverse places and people I’ve come to appreciate traveling around the world. It certainly explains my longtime love affair with San Francisco’s Mission District, an ecosystem of cultural and creative riches that I have called home for almost 20 years.
When I’m not roaming around my neighborhood, I can be found scheming new ways of simplifying life or ruminating on my blog, A World of Words.
