About… Me

A lawyer by training but storyteller at heart, I have worked as an attorney, in business theatre, Murder Mystery© productions and publications. I write in English and German but with a strong preference for English. There are several prose oeuvres (mostly of the short story or novella variety) floating around on my hard disk but my true passion is screenwriting. I love big stories that appeal to deep, universal emotions or whisk you away on a two-hour romp. Preferably both.

My aim is to create stories that not only offer good entertainment but also give the audience something to think about, such as the state of our planet (did I mention I like big stories?) or questions of justice, whether on an individual or society level.
