Born in Munich, Germany, I immigrated to the U.S. as a student in 1999, and have written both in English and German since. I am endlessly curious about the human psyche and in particular about identity formation and retention: in my written work, I often explore our joys and struggles, our strengths and shortcomings,  and how they make us into who we are. Other topics of interest include philosophy, culture and travel.

My books and articles have been published internationally and in a variety of languages.
