Travel & Video Journalist
CEO Traveltv.at e. U.
While working as a contributing editor for the Austrian newspaper Kurier, I discovered my passion for travel and tourism, a wonderful and challenging field of work, over two decades ago.
As one of the first Austrian travel journalists, I have come to develop an innovative cross-media business model for the travel industry. Since 2012 I have been producing editorial web videos and comprehensive multimedia campaigns. As I developed the campaigns on my own, I gained a greater understanding of all the working parts: editing, script, camera, sound, moderation, audio dubbing, as well as the overall media distribution for the finished work.
Since December 2014 I have merged my extensive know-how with the internationally active company TRAVELTV.at.
