My name is Annette. I am a freelance writer and cover topics that I am fascinated by: psychological research, the life of interesting people, intercultural experiences. I am also a Yoga teacher and love to share with my students the joys and benefits that this practice entails. While my primary base is San Francisco, I also spend a couple of months every year in my native country Germany.
