My Work as a Freelance Journalist

Writing about Technology, Society & the Future

Alongside my work in SEO and media consulting, I am a full-blooded journalist at my core with almost two decades of experience. I first started contributing to a regional Austrian newspaper, Kleine Zeitung, as a freelance writer at age 17. Ever since, I have simply enjoyed investigating exciting new stories and sharing them with the world. As an avid traveler and travel journalist, I have had the opportunity to cover stories right where they happen and never shied to step out of my comfort zone to get to the heart of a story. Today I continue to regularly contribute features about technology, society, and environmental issues to international news outlets, for example via Tea After 12.

Tech-Journalism is Putting it Simply.

One of my strengths as a journalist is my ability to put complex things into simple words. This is especially important when covering tech-topics. I simply love to approach topics of maximum complexity, put them into a context that matters, and explain them in a way the audience can comprehend.

From artificial intelligence and blockchain technology, to data protection and carbon offset — I cover a variety of exciting issues as a tech journalist, always with the intention of helping my readers acquire a better understanding of the world we live in and the future that awaits us.

In my SEO blog I share some of my know-how and provide tutorials for DIY success in search engine optimization.

Here are pictures and memories from journalistic expeditions I’d like to share with you 🙂

Freelance Technology Journalist for Hire?

Although my main focus has shifted more towards SEO consulting, I remain rooted in journalism by maintaining continuous engagement with several publishers, yet I do not always find the time I would like to have to freely explore new topics as a journalist. If you are in need of a talented tech journalist to investigate a certain subject one that is particularly interesting — I will gladly free up space in my schedule and switch gears to get to the bottom of your desired topic 😉
