Welcome to my website! I am Chris Helmbrecht, a marketing expert, author, party creator, and adventurer who has lived six years in New York, a year in Tenerife, and then nineteen years in the most exciting city in Europe, Moscow.
For over 30 years, I have been working as a writer. My initial publications included interviews with bands such as the Beastie Boys, Metallica, Suicidal Tendencies, and many more, as well as travel reports from my adventures as a professional snowboarder in renowned German snowboard magazines.
As an enthusiastic observer, I enjoy diving into sometimes risky adventures, often reaping exciting stories as rewards. Many of these experiences, all of which are true, I transform into articles on my blogs, some of which have also made their way into my book.
For three years, I wrote a blog for Stern (.de) and also had other articles published in Stern. Today, I write content for clients, create my own blogs, and develop concepts for TV documentaries. In recent years, I have been involved in a variety of films.
In my book “Fucking Moskau!” (published in 2013 in Germany by Heyne Verlag/Randomhouse), I take you on an unforgettable journey into the world of unbridled luxury, unrestrained indulgence, and the breathtaking contrasts of this vibrant metropolis.
Moscow, this dazzling city full of overwhelming contradictions, allows me to encounter incomparable wealth as well as the boundless desire for pleasure and life.
In “Fucking Moskau!” I share my experiences of freezing nights and scorching encounters, of ruthless oligarchs and their extravagant parties. I describe vodka-fueled revelry and the insatiable hunger for both money and pleasure. This generation in Russia has it all – yet it seems they can never get enough.
With this book, I offer you a glimpse behind the scenes, an unfiltered perspective on the exciting and sometimes crazy life in a city that never sleeps.
Join me on this journey as I unveil the hot side of Russia. Immerse yourself in the world of Moscow, where the nights are long, the parties are extravagant, and the boundaries between luxury and desire blur. “Fucking Moskau!” is more than just a narrative – it’s an invitation to experience the pulsating heart of this captivating city up close.
