My time and energy is dedicated to writing and broadcasting. A University of St Andrews and University of Goettingen alumnus, I started working as a freelance journalist in my teenage years, mostly covering football and sport politics. Among other things, I am one of the people behind the well-known football blog Spielverlagerung. Over the course of my (limited) career, my work has appeared in The Times, BBC, ESPN, DW, Deutschlandfunk, The Spectator, Der Spiegel, Die ZEIT, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Der Tagesspiegel, 11 Freunde, Sport Bild, and The Ringer. Moreover, I run my own YouTube channel and a podcast called “The Football Pod”, and work as a German-speaking live commentator and presenter.

I once was a foreign correspondent for a German press agency, a reporter for German television, a columnist for a Japanese magazine, a sports photographer in London, a muddle-headed student in Istanbul, an overworked researcher in Parisian archives, a guide in Indian metropolises, a city councillor at 19, and a few other things. My articles have been published in various languages including English, German, French, Italian, Russian, Arabic, and Japanese. Unfortunately, I only speak some of them.
