SimTimes.de - The Sims Fansite in Germany


AUG 2003 SimTimes.de

One of Germany's leading community sites about The Sims offering the latest news and preview articles.

Created as a small virtual diary about the life of my Sims, SimTimes.de today is one of the leading community sites about The Sims franchise by Electronic Arts in Germany, Europe and worldwide.

Each year, more than a million fans visit SimTimes.de to get the latest news and information about the upcoming games of the life simulation. Since 2005 we have the chance to visit producer events around the globe to play the new The Sims games before their release. So I had the chance to visit the EA campus in Redwood Shores (California) for three times already.

SimTimes.de is known to offer the latest news fast. The site has been awarded for best coverage by Electronic Arts three times – unique in the whole community.

Total War Headquarter

JUL 2012 TotalWar-HQ.de

The home for fans of strategy games by Creative Assembly.

It started with an announcement: back in 2012 Creative Assembly revealed Total War: Rome II, a highly anticipated game. I wanted to know everything about this game and set up a small fanpage where I collected all news and info bits about this game.

The site grew very fast and became the first place for news and information about Total War: Rome II in Germany with up to 400k visitors per month. Today the site covers all Total War games by Creative Assembly. In an active forum fans can find a place to discuss the upcoming games and best strategies for their next virtual battle.

»Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.«

I love to travel through the local region, Germany or around the globe. It's so interesting to discover different places and cultures. I like short city trips or larger round trips through a country.

My faithful companion: my camera. I'm not a professional photographer. But I love to take photos and to edit these photos with Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. You can see some of my pictures on Instagram.
