I am a writer, translator and editor who owns a sword cane and a laptop. I love doing stuff with words, and did not go to school to learn this. Somehow I mostly end up writing about history, travel or booze, and was once called an ‘adventurer’ by a Russian newspaper. I'm still not sure if that was ironic or not.

I live in Dublin, Cologne and Berlin, and I also sing in a heavy metal-band.
