I am available for manuscript/book project evaluation, design and concept consultation, developmental editing, and contributing to the writing and translating of selected manuscripts. Since 2011, I direct and manage the small press and publishing atelier, K. Verlag, in Berlin. So far, we’ve produced more than 30 publications in various formats that won several design awards. In May 2020, K. Verlag was also named a recipient of the prestigious Deutscher Verlagspreis (German Publishing Prize), which is awarded annually to honor outstanding independent publishers by the Federal Ministry of Culture. In addition to my experience of running K., I have also worked as an freelance editor and translator for art institutions, magazines, publishers, universities, and individuals in Germany and abroad. This includes editorial positions at Merve Verlag (2008–11) and the digital culture festival, transmediale (2009–12), as well as being the Associate Editor of Publications for the 8th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art (2014).
I work mainly on German and English language publications.
