International journalism experience, and practitioner-oriented re­search

Put met­a­phor­i­cally, I have a professional and an academic leg to stand on which I have trained for mar­a­thons.

I have continuously acquired qualifications and certificates and de­vel­oped my specialist knowl­edge from as early as my secondary school days as the publisher of my own school magazine, then as the Press Officer of the Students' Union of RWTH Aachen University in Germany (36,000 students), and well into my professional life as a respected journalist and publicist.

As a result, I am well-versed in working in the context of professional, mar­ket­ing-based con­tent management that is process- and quality-oriented, resilient, on sched­ule and dependable, whether my role is that of a freelance, member of a small team, manager of a global virtual production team spanning a variety of enterprise cultures, or head of a Public Relations De­part­ment. For over a decade now, I have been publishing and marketing content of every kind suc­cess­fully.

Leadership, initiative and project management skills

My communications experience in jour­nal­ism incorporates the professional production of met­ro­pol­i­tan, state, national, or world news reports and editorials especially through newspapers, magazines, radio, and the World-Wide Web.

My communications experience in public relations includes the management of information flows between various organisations and their employees, customers, investors, voters, jour­nal­ists, or the general public using face-to-face meetings, telephone, e-mail, the World-Wide Web, paper and online media, forum boards, reports, and presentations.

My com­pe­tence in sci­en­tif­ic jour­nal­ism covers professional jour­nal­ism that translates complex sci­en­tif­ic discoveries into readily comprehensible news for non-experts.

My aptitude in community jour­nal­ism incorporates professional jour­nal­ism that focuses on the life of ethnic communities in society.

My expertise in political jour­nal­ism involves professional journalism that covers civil gov­ern­ment as analysed and discussed in the news media.
