I have about 15 years of experience in connecting people through stories.
It all depends on the projects at hand. Some projects may need close to 100 percent of time to be dedicated to problem solving. This can shift based on needs and changes in projects.
I've worked under Christoph's direction during video shoots for BVS and have been impressed with the efficiency at which he operates. He strives for perfection and holds high standards in his work. At the same time, he holds a personable attitiude that makes for a comfortable work environment. I would recommend Christoph as someone to work with.
Christoph's work for The Gazette, a general circulation daily newspaper in Eastern Iowa, was outstanding. He started as a correspondent, then worked as a overachieving intern. When he returned as our public safety reporter, he found and wrote an astounding number of exclusive, enterprising stories. He was widely respected by his sources and his colleagues. We hated losing him
I work with Christoph when producing training video for the banking industry. He serves as the producer on these shoots, which entails writing the scripts, meeting with crew members to discuss details of the production, and directing the crew and cast during the shoot. He is responsible for the final look of the production and keeping it within the strict guidelines set by the company he's working for. Christoph has been nice to work with, as he is both attentive and demanding, yet also very humorous and fun. I hope to have the pleasure to work with Christoph again soon.
Christoph and I have worked together on two projects -- both were training videos for the company he works for, BVS. Christoph hired me as an actor on both productions. I enjoy working for Christoph. He is always well-prepared, detail oriented and very professional. I would not hesitate to recommend Christoph and his organization to any actors looking for this type of work.
Christoph was a detail-oriented reporter who covered his beat thoroughly. Stories did not slip past Christoph, and his writing always captured the personal details that made readers feel like they were there. Most importantly, though, he was ACCURATE.
Christoph raised the bar for public safety reporting at The Gazette and GazetteOnline.com. His strong rapport-building skills, intellectual curiosity, resourcefulness, initiative, technological savvy, foresight, attention to detail and analytical abilities all contributed to his stellar work at spot news reporting and enterprise writing.
Christoph was one of the best public safety reporters we've had at The Gazette. His relationships with key sources helped us get stories that we wouldn't have gotten otherwise, and he worked doggedly to pursue stories that might have fallen by the wayside without such efforts. He always had new ideas to improve our products and brought a great deal of energy to the newsroom. He is missed here at The Gazette. Had I the opportunity, I'd hire him without hesitation.
Christoph is an engaged, energetic, enterprising reporter with an obvious passion for crime and public safety stories. He knows how to work a beat. He generates all kinds of story ideas. And he frequently scooped the competition as a writer for both the Iowa City Press-Citizen and the Gazette. Public safety is a tough beat, and police are often reluctant to speak with reporters. But it's clear from Chistoph's stories that he developed strong source relationships with authorities and gained their trust and respect.
Christoph impressed me, not just for his natural abilities, but for his desire to learn and improve in every aspect of his job. He showed a passion and devotion to his work.
Christoph is a highly motivated young man. As a student, he was an enthusiastic learner and a great team player. His hard work, dedication, and kindness set him far above his peers. He is reliable, responsible, and serious about becoming the best journalist he can be.
While I did not work directly with Christoph, I was always very impressed with his investigative skills, common sense and writing. In addition, Christoph is one of the most forward thinking news people I know.
