My twin sister and I were born in 1982 and raised in Prairie Village, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City. We both followed in our mother’s footsteps with a Catholic school upbringing. After attending the University of Kansas to study finance and then a fifteen-year career in commercial real estate, I reflected on life and desired a change of scenery. After departing from nearly all my belongings, I moved to Germany for a taste of European living. Upon arrival, I attended the Technical University of Munich to further my business studies, while at the same time, I took up the pen and began writing about my experiences and new life. In the course of the first couple years in Germany I published my first book, Perfect Village, and contribute ever so often to my newsletter, The Munich Times.

I still dedicate plenty of time to my real estate career, but otherwise, if I'm not reading, writing, or striving to conquer the German language, you will find me swimming, hiking, golfing and skiing. I take every opportunity to jump on a train with a coffee and newspaper to absorb all of Bavaria’s cultural traditions or venture further to explore the continent’s history and landscape.
