I started working as a freelance journalist in my teenage years, mostly covering football and sport politics. Over the course of my (limited) career, my work has appeared in The Times, BBC, ESPN, DW, Deutschlandfunk, Der Spiegel, Die ZEIT, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Der Tagesspiegel, 11 Freunde, Sport Bild, and The Ringer. Moreover, I have been running Spielverlagerung.com, a leading football analytics site – read more about its influence in football on Reuters.

What’s more to say? I’ve recently managed to finish my PhD thesis in Modern History at the University of St Andrews and University of California, Berkeley. I once was a foreign correspondent for a German press agency, a reporter for German television, a columnist for a Japanese football 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.
