I’m heading the interactive team at Zeit Online in Berlin (currently on elder care leave). Our work covers a wide range – you might have seen one of our storytelling projects in recent years: Straßenbilder: Mozart, Marx und ein Diktator (English version), Stadt, Land, Vorurteil (English version), Fremde Freunde, Eine Nation pendelt or Das geteilte Land, to name a few.
Previous roles at Zeit included Head of Editorial Dev („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. Before the internet I worked as a news presenter and reporter for radio stations in Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia.
