Writer / Content Strategist / Events Manager



I use GIFs, emojis, and sometimes words to share personal lessons in self-improvement. In July 2017 I published my first book, Let's Take Berlin, available on Amazon. I write primarily on Medium, and I've also been published in the Washington Post, Huffington Post, Swipe Magazine (UK), and the Local (Germany).

Let's Take Berlin

Join me for a tongue-in-cheek tour of expat life in Berlin. Weaving colorful observations with poignant personal stories, I share first-hand experiences with everything from sex clubs to saunas. Let's Take Berlin will make you feel like a true Berliner—complete with club stamps on your wrist, doner kebab grease on your chin, and a smile on your face.
