About me

Jackie Chan’s movies and Hong Kong cinema itself already fascinated me when I was very young. My hobby paved the way for me becoming an author. Today, I combine my passion for movies with my job by writing about the Hong Kong film legend. I set myself a goal: Providing important and rare information about Jackie Chan as a historian for German speaking fans and keep on learning about Chan the Man.

By 2021, I decided to translate all of my Jackie Chan articles into English with this new website. I hope you enjoy, please be kind since I am still improving my English skills.

My work as an author started back in 2008. Even before and during my studies I dealt with a wide variety of text types on a freelance basis. Since then I have been doing commissioned work in all areas of text and conceptual work. In addition to more than 50 publications in different subjects so far, I am also continuously working on my own books, eBooks and plays.

As a counterbalance to the time-consuming but exciting work as a Jackie Chan historian, I dedicate myself to healthy eating, sporting activities and hiking.


Business Inquiries

In the past I’ve had the privilege of working with film labels on home theater releases for booklets and general research. I am currently planning to offer interested film labels added value for their releases with my own German-language audio commentaries.

If you need a writer, concepter or simply a source of ideas for your next Jackie Chan release, please get in touch with me. Whether film, book, audio or anything else – I approach every new task with curiosity and joy.
