⚡ Storytelling 

Lisa Geiger has an old-school swallow tattooed on the back of her neck bearing a scroll that says ”La Vie Bohème.” But at the same time, she works as a social media manager for a no-nonsense insurance client that got rich by convincing us that, no, we are actually not as free as birds, and yes, we have responsibilities, so we have to cover our risks.

If that seems ironic to you, well, there are two things you do not know about Lisa Geiger.
First, she has a family by heart on the steamy outskirts of Tampa, Florida. And second, that one day, she plans to revolutionize the business of journalism.
Geiger grew up in Freiburg, where she was kind of a journalistic prodigy. She was the founding editor of her school paper, Traktat, and she worked in her spare time for local media.

In 2005, she followed some friends to Tampa Florida, where she watched the DVD version of the rock musical Rent so often that the songs, including “La Vie Bohème,” literally etched themselves into her being. Rent is about impoverished artists slogging through life in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
Her parents absolutely hated the swallow tattoo when she showed it to them upon returning to Freiburg, a transformed person. But she was still as keen as ever to pursue a career in media, particularly music journalism.

She went to live in Berlin and commuted to Frankfurt on the Oder for courses in cultural studies at the European University Viadrina.

While studying, Geiger kept the swallow in the air by doing a practicum at Berlin’s Zitty magazine, and went on to work as a regular freelancer there for a few years, covering at first music, then other beats. She eventually moved on to cover special assignments on Berlin’s Tagesspiegel newspaper.

Geiger is now totally immersed in the world of social media and content marketing. She knows the future of journalism is ultimately tied to social media. So these are on-mission jobs, considering her long-term goal, she says, is to help create the next revolution in the journalism trade.

“Content marketing is about telling stories the reader wants to hear,” says Geiger. “And journalism is about telling stories that need to be told.”
