Victoria Ichizli-Bartels

Victoria is a writer and specialist in business development, information technology, semiconductor physics, and electronic engineering. She founded Optimist Writer in October 2015 as a writing, publishing, and consulting business. She was born and grew up in Moldova, lived in Germany for twelve years, and, since 2008, lives in Aalborg, Denmark, with her husband and two children. Since 2015, Victoria has published over twenty non-fiction and fiction books, some in more than one edition and language.

While turning parts of her life since 2014 and all of it into fun games since September 2017, Victoria came up with a unique and unconventional self-motivational and empowering approach, which she calls Self-Gamification. This approach brings anthropology, kaizen, and gamification together. She published more than ten books and two online courses on the topic. More books are on the way.

Before starting her writing and consulting business, Victoria authored a Ph.D. thesis on semiconductor physics and technology and many scientific and technical publications.
