Position

Kommentar

As a native English speaker with fluent German, I have worked on global communications projects spanning five continents. My freelance and in-house experience ranges from Corporate Communications and Content Marketing to Lifestyle Magazines and Online News. A few highlights include:

Airbus - Forum
American Express - Centurion and Departures
Amway - Amagram
Boston Herald - International News
Dassault Systemes - 3DExcite
Deutsche Telekom - Brand & Design
Fujitsu - Perspectives

LogMeIn - GoToMeeting

MTU Aero Engines - Aeroreport
Siemens - next47

TSO Security Cooperation - TSCNET Services
United Internet - GMX, WEB.DE, and Mail.com

With a focus on technology and innovation, I am just as comfortable writing in-depth articles, copywriting and copy editing for a global audience, or screenwriting for international film and video. Using agile project management, I have developed a Scrum-based content strategy to increase revenue by 50% in the first 100 days. And I base my business model on delivering quality that is reliable, scalable, and sustainable.

If you would like to learn what this could mean for you and your organization, I would be happy to hear from you.
