About me

I'm a journalist and writer based in the United Arab Emirates. Originally from Austria, I moved from London to Abu Dhabi in 2009. Internationally, my work has appeared in MonocleWanderlust, Sunday Times Travel, Architektur and artichoke. In the UAE, I've written for The National, Brownbook, Harper's Bazaar ArtPlaza, WTD and the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, among others. I edited infographics and books for Al Bayan before joining the Emirates Wildlife Society-WWF to work on climate and energy issues in the UAE. 

This site is my personal portfolio and blog.  For work samples, please see the clippings page. For more information about my professional experience, please see my profile on LinkedIn

This blog covers anything from random notes on life in the UAE to posts about media, media history, culture, art, architecture, travel, sustainability and infographics. If anything here annoys, surprises or intrigues you, I'd love to hear about it.
