I’m not good at telling stories. That’s why I write them down.
I started to write for newspapers when I was 15 years old. My first job was a monthly column for Swiss national newspaper Tages-Anzeiger. In the following years I finished school, lived abroad and went to university. I never stopped writing.
I’ve written about chefs who mastered culinary traditions and broke them, a cyclist who conquers mountains with a single-speed bike in search for beauty, a world famous comedian who sacrifices herself for the joke on her quest to empower women, and an olympic medal winner who rides like a knight and dreams like a poet.
I lived in Berlin, London and Copenhagen. Now I’m based in Zurich, Switzerland, where I’m completing my masters degree in political economy and philosophy and spend my days thinking about things that matter more than you or me.
Since I tend to meet interesting people along the way, I started a project called #tavolagrandezh. Its aim is to bring together young bright things to discuss brave ideas and real-world challenges. And because this city lacks a serious rascal, I co-founded Bande de Coquins, a weekly editorial about Zurich.
I like photography, too. Alongside my written work you also find a visual diary on this page. All photos are taken by me, unless stated otherwise.
