Hello and welcome to my website, my own little microcosm, where you can find everything that I was involved in in the past and everything that I’m currently working on.
I am originally from Germany. I was born in 1988 in what used to be East Germany. In 2007, after having finished school, I left Germany to study in Scotland. For some reason, I knew back then that I wouldn’t return home and so it is. After eight years in the UK and a brief stop in Brussels, I am now based in France with my husband and my cat.
At the moment, I’m wearing different professional coats. I’m a writer and critic for my own website The Art(s) of Slow Cinema, which I set up in autumn 2012 as part of my PhD research. For many years, I have had a particular affinity to Slow Cinema and have used the internet to help me channel this affinity to the outside world.
My other main coat is that of language teacher, one-to-one, on Skype or Zoom. I’ve been doing this job since early 2018, and what I probably love most about it is meeting interesting people, primarily from Japan (the online service I’m working for is Japanese). I simply love being in touch with people from different background, different cultures, who speak different languages.
Please feel free to browse this site to get to know me better. I’m always open for commissioned texts/articles/critiques, for debates and panels, and other opportunities in the field of (arthouse/slow) cinema.
And, of course, if you have any questions, please do get in touch!
