Here’s a little video collage with images from my internet activities over the last 2 years:

  • I’ve had a lot of fun creating way over 100 web pages about my recipes and other personal interests on Squidoo.com
  • It’s been such a rewarding experience to manage and co-author BreadHealthy.com. My dear friend and co-founder of Dr.Kracker Flatbreads, George Eckrich shares a wealth of knowledge on artisan bread baking and healthy eating
  • I’m honored to run the English-language blog about the most successful German stage author of all times, Michael Kunze. Explore his fantastic hit musicals on DramaMusicals.com
