About

Born in Germany to Hungarian and Romanian parents, I grew up in Vienna, Austria before moving to England to study at Girton College, Cambridge University.

After two years of an Economics degree and an internship at an investment bank, I realised that this was not a road I wanted to be on.  I soon came to a crossroads: In 2009, I switched degrees to Geography, added on a Master’s in geophysics (glaciology, to be specific – yes, it’s a thing!) and discovered my passion for science and for understanding how our planet works.

This rather radical shift also ignited a desire to discover its marvels of the world with my own eyes – and to bring them closer to others through the media of writing and photography. The first opportunity to write professionally arose at the British Antarctic Survey: not a bad start!

After graduating, I worked at the London 2012 Olympic Games and travelled for seven months: among many other things I climbed a Himalayan mountain, hiked into Mordor in New Zealand, escaped to the Cook Islands and drank in Japan’s bewildering beauty.

I then moved to London, where I have been a science writer at a learned society for the last year and a half. In my free time, I am a freelance writer and photographer. For more information, have a look at my writing and photography portfolios (coming soon).

I would be delighted to write guest posts on blogs and to talk to you about any projects you would like me to work on with you – please do get in touch!

Beating the humdrum – because life will only ever be as good as you make it.
