I'm a writer and environmental advocate living in San Francisco, with roots in Germany. I'm intimately involved in the advancement of sustainable cities, and I love writing and reporting on any activity that makes cities and the world more livable. Give me a bicycle or public transit pass, and my travels are guaranteed to be fun. Immersing myself in local food, art, language and culture makes me very happy. I'm easy going and open-minded with just enough German in me to keep both feet on the ground.
