Born 1965 in Thessaloniki. I studied German and English Literature in the University of Cologne/Germany. Since 1990 I am working as a journalist. First for the daily News of Deutsche Welle and then for WDR Broadcast, Cologne. Three years later I started to do freelance work in Culture and Politics from Greece. At the same time the first writing reports on travelling in Greece appeared. This was when I decided to live the most time of the year in Thessaloniki/Greece to be better connected to events in the country. In April 2001 my first book "Culinaria Greece" appeared in the stores, which very soon was translated in English, French, Netherlands, Swedish, Spanish and Hungarian. From that time on, I also began writing articles for travel books on Greece for different German publishing houses (Polyglott, Merian, Dumont, Baedecker). In December 2003 I went to the Peloponnese where I took part in the 60 year ceremony dedicated to the Massacre of Kalavrita during World War II. by the German Wehrmacht. Out of this experience I created a 30 minutes documentary for WDR TV about this anniversary. In the same year, I also started to write for the Greek Resort Chain "Grecotel." In 2005 I have had the opportunity to work with archeologists in Northern Greece where documenting their work. In 2007 I started to write my second book, this time for the Greek publishing house "Potamos." The book "A Journey to the Garden of Mary" was presented at the bookfair of Thessaloniki in March 2011. It is the first book about Mount Athos written by a woman. 2016, this book is beeing translated and will be published to German, English and Russian. In Mai 2016 I recieved the European-Media-Prize "CIVIS" for my 45-minutes Radio Feature about Refugee-Crisis in the Aegean.
