Growing up in the south-west of Germany, Kai made his first steps into the international media business in 2012 in Warsaw, Poland, right after graduating from school. He worked for a national radio station and wrote later on for a celebrity gossip website. In 2013, after a short view into the social sector, he started studying “Popular Music and Media” at the university of Paderborn, north-west of Germany. During that time he joined the team of NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION as a free writer, taking over topics such as new albums and concerts in pop, but also pop musical/cultural phenomenons. Since an internship in 2015 for Musicboard Berlin, an institution for the enhancement of the city’s popular music scene, Kai has been working for several music and film festivals in the capital. He is currently writing his BA thesis about feminism in the US-pop music and working on his first own musical material.
Kai will be a panellist in Is This Enough? Music Media + Gender Justice at Elisabeth Studios on Thursday, November 9th, 2017.
