Evening rush hour in Hanoi, Vietnam
Hello! I’m a journalist and a product person based in Munich. Soon: Condé Nast International.
Until recently I was heading the interactive team at Zeit Online in Berlin. Our work covered a wide range – you might have seen one of our visual storytelling projects in recent years: Straßenbilder: Mozart, Marx und ein Diktator (English version), Fremde Freunde, Eine Nation pendelt, Das neue Leben der Stalinallee or Das geteilte Land, to name a few.
Previous roles at Zeit included Head of Editorial R+D („Entwicklungsredaktion“) and Head of Video.
Before Zeit I worked for Bayerischer Rundfunk (Bavaria’s public broadcasting service) and ZDF German Television in senior positions including homepage management, reporting and conceptual/editorial project management – preferably in a bridge role connecting journalists, developers and designers.
My work also appeared in Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, Tagesspiegel, Bayern2Radio, Humboldt magazine of Goethe-Institut, Wirtschaftswoche E-Business and Focus Online.
Before the internet I worked as a news presenter and reporter for radio stations in Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia.
I graduated with a Magister degree in history and political science from Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf.
