After finishing my Bachelor’s degree in Book Studies and Sociology at the Johannes Gutenberg-University in Mainz, I decided to move across Europe to continue my journey in Publishing Studies at the University of Stirling. Literature has been a constant companion of mine, from early childhood until today, and therefore the decision to pursue a career in the publishing industry was an easy one. As passionate as I am about books, I find it essential to never lose focus on reality and the hardships that come with being a publisher in the 21st century. I am highly interested in new digital developments and eager to expand my knowledge regarding ebooks and apps and the extraordinary opportunities that come with them.

I am most excited about the book project we will be working on. This is a unique opportunity to not only work creatively but to learn about every aspect of publishing books or magazines. I am especially thrilled to be given the chance to design a product cover to cover, and cannot wait to see my work in printed form.
