Busy in Taiwan.

imgp1198neu_2-01 I like living in Taipei. Something is always happening here. Reporting from Taiwan is my job. I am a freelance journalist and probably the only German correspondent regularly reporting from Taiwan for print media, radio and TV.There is so much people in the West should know about Taiwan – about its democracy, diverse culture, stunning landscapes, and most of all about the amazing people here. I want to explore it further and understand it better.
Check out my English/Chinese book Taiwan: Snapshots of Democracy in Action. Now also available on iTunes.Read my English blog posts on Taiwan.

Some of my reports for Deutsche Welle have been translated into English:

  • Listen to an audio interview about my work in Taiwan.
  • A report about me and other foreign reporters in a Taiwanese government magazine:

taiwanreporter – not just in German.

Most of my work is done in German, but of course I also work for English-language media. I am a trained video journalist and film TV reports with my own equipment. You can watch some of them right here. If you want to offer high quality videos from a fascinating country on your website, look no further. If you need a professional video introducing new products or your company’s activities in Taiwan, please get in touch.
