Artist, Author, Adventurer

Currently I am implementing a new backend on all my websites, which first shows here. You already see to the right, that all kinds of more or less new articles pop up in different languages, some of which don't work yet, since I am using this site as a test. Basically all my work on our other sites will pop up and be searchable on I am also about to make everything bilingual. That does not mean that every article will be translated to German, it just means that there is an English portion of each website, as well as a German one.
On however it will be a wild mix and may chaos bring forth beauty.
So, stay tuned.

Welcome visitor to the kaleidoscope of words and images that makes up the mind of a writer who left the safety of his hometown Salzburg to settle in the chaotic environment of Vietnam's most bustling city Saigon.

As simple as that. You need something written in English or German language, I write it for you. The price for quill work largely depends on the subject, style and amount of research that flows into me and from there on the page.

Like every other writer out there I bring to (electronic) paper almost anything, but I have some fields where I am specialised in:

  • Travel
    in Vietnam and Southeast Asia, as well as Europe, especially Austria.
  • Food
    I think everybody is a food writer at heart, though I have a background in gastronomy that helps a lot.
  • Art and Oddities
    is something I love from the very bottom of my heart. Whether it be artsy, creative human made stuff, design from elegant to quirky or fantastic, inspired craftsmanship, I love to explore and tackle new horizons.

Now that are the main fields I am most enthusiastic about. Of course, professional writing involves more than that, and I am up to the challenge.

Being near native in English and native in German at the same time comes with some perks, like being able not only to write in one of these languages, but also to translate from one to the other while keeping the tone and meaning as similar as possible.
