After studying political science, education and economics and working for church
organisations I am presently working as a freelance journalist in Hamburg, Germany.
I have published articles, research papers and books on a wide range of issues
from local history to global ecological problems. Presently my main fields of
work are global water issues, communication, globalisation and ecumenical themes.
I am writing most of the articles and books in German, but over the years a number of my publications were translated into English and several articles were written in English.
An example is a study on the role of the German company RWE in the global water market. The study was originally written in German for the German Southern Africa Network KOSA. Now a shortened English version of this study and a study by Peter Schnabel is prepared.

I also prepared a study on a totally different theme, the theology of the German Pentecostal preacher Reinhard Bonnke who attracts large audiences especially in African countries. This study was published by “Evangelische Missionswerk in Deutschland” EMW in Hamburg. The All Africa Conference of Churches was so interested in the study that an English version was produced. The AACC also plans to produce versions in French, Spanish and Portuguese.

Recently an article appeared in the journal "Development and Cooperation" on water conflicts in Africa. You find the article on the website of the journal.
