Together with Sascha Asendorf, I founded Guided.news in 2021, a project that emerged from our shared experience (13 years) at the predecessor project Survivethis.news. With a focus on survival, horror, and shooter games, these genres remain my focus at Guided.news today. I cover these areas in developer interviews and press events.

Experience

In 2016, I started at "Survivethis", a leading German site for survival and horror games. Just six months later, I became the youngest writer at "GameStar.de". I was later promoted to full-time writer at Survivethis and a few years later to editor-in-chief. In early 2021 we founded "Guided", and in the middle of the year I started writing for the German MMO site "MeinMMO" to gain further experience in games journalism.

Job and Responsibility

I am co-founder of Guided and my tasks include

  • Planning and implementation of content campaigns (content planning)
  • Planning and implementation of SEO campaigns (on- & off-page)
  • Writing new articles and improving existing content.
  • Improving the general design of Guided and UX.
