I always dreamt about writing ever since I was a little girl. Growing up on the DDR border to West Germany I was curious about ‘the other side’. I knew nothing about gambling and casinos, I had never heard the words ‘slot machine’ or ‘baccarat’ . It was all foreign to me, but after the reunification I found a job as a writer for a German Casino. I was tasked with writing game instructions and later on the casino's own weekly letters, and I was hooked. The atmosphere really suited me and what I was about. There is something so liberating about casinos and it’s all about having fun! I found the game of roulette thrilling and poker nerve-racking, few places of work can offer either of those feelings. As casinos moved online, I found myself busier than ever. There is always something new to write about, and I am excited to see where the next 10 Years have installed for the Casino industry.

Best gambling quote: “Money won is twice as sweet as money earned.”
