Roman Maas Freelance Writer

About Me

I have always been captivated by the written word and all sorts of culture and sub-culture. From a young age on I devoured novels, non-fiction works, comic books and lots of obscure media. I was born in Düsseldorf, Germany where I also lived, studied and worked for the most part of my life. I graduated from university and did a number of jobs in the news/media/PR sector. In 2015 I became a freelance writer.

    Topics

    I cover a broad spectrum of topics. Let me know about what you need for your company, news channel or project.


    Travel

    My visited countries

    Roaming through the world opens up minds and hearts. It is a way to get away from everything whilst throwing oneself into new experiences. You conquer fears and make new friends. You learn how to enjoy life without much money and how to let go of attachements.

    I am locally independent and work online from different countries. I can write content of any kind for your enterprise in the tourism and travel sector.

  • City Travelling
  • Backpacking
  • Solo Travellng
  • Digital Nomadism
  • Nature and Eco Tourism
  • Hiking

  • Tech and Sciences


    The speed of technological process and scientific advance is quicker than most of us can imagine. While daily news often suggest decline and growing instability, technological solutions are being developed that can change our societies to the better. Decentralized systems are revolutionizing old, inflexible structures. Augmented and Virtual Reality are about to enter the medical, technological and architectural sectors, going far beyond just being gaming technology.

    I write informative articles about science and technology, tech reviews and promotional texts for your future oriented enterprise.

  • Digital Culture
  • Mobile Gadgets and Applications
  • Augmented and Virtual Reality
  • Smart Cities
  • Decentralization
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Futurism
  • Culture

    I have learned medieval history in my anglistics classes and american cinema in my history classes. In university I specialised in drama theory, (post)modernism, historiography and science-fiction movies. Beyond that I am constantly educating myself on countless topics.

    I write media reviews, promotional texts for your art project and report from cultural events.

  • History
  • Literature
  • Comics / Graphic Novels
  • Gaming
  • Movies and TV
  • Fantasy / Sci-Fi

  • Nature

    No doubt that our natural environment needs protection and conservation. This means education about the problems and solutions of our time is essential. I became a PR specialist working for clients like tree nursery associations, landscape architects and green city planners. I am also specialising in nature photography, especially macro photography of insects and other small life forms.

    I can help educating your customers and readers about developing more conscious habits concerning environmental behaviour - at work and in everyday life.

  • Biology
  • Sustainability
  • Renewable Energies
  • Urban Ecology
  • Plants, Fungi and Animals
  • Biodiversity


    Mind and Body

    Stress, depression and lack of purpose are increasing problems in our time. Many don't even know that there are effective ways and methods to feel better without having to turn to antidepressants. Physical exercises and simple meditation practices can do wonders.

    If you need articles or life hacks to help with stress reduction or issues with motivation, or if you want to promote your self-help enterprise, I am there for you!
