Bio
I’m a publisher by trade and additionally have a master’s degree in business and tourism. Over 2 decades ago I left home, traveled a lot and lived in numerous countries around the globe; one of these is Peru, which – yes, I have to admit it – I wasn’t fond of at first, but fell deeply in love with over the 10 years I stayed.

Next to traveling and immerging into the lifestyle of my guest country, I love to read, research and share my knowledge. So, writing about my impressions and experiences and getting the facts right isn’t an obligation for me, but comes naturally and from my heart.

I’m always eager to learn more about different (ancient) cultures, their lifestyle, traditions, beliefs and how they are interconnected. And last but not least my respect for nature and its beauty makes me passionate about living a less consume-oriented life and maintaining our biodiversity, which results in my love of the abundance of fresh fruits, veggies and other produce in Peru, which then ends in my kitchen where I enjoy cooking and baking.

Peru with all its beauty and riches, but also with all its flaws, is a very special, here and there even a magic place; and I’m thrilled to introduce you to it and give you an understanding of this amazing country as co-founder and editor in chief of Peru Telegraph.
