I'm a multimedia journalist currently based in New England. I previously worked for DW News/Deutsche Welle as an anchor and on-air correspondent, based in Berlin and the US East Coast, where I covered politics, culture, and everything in between. I've reported on the attacks in Charlottesville, North Carolina, Hurricane Florence, ​the Detroit Auto Show, the immigrant experience in the US and in Germany, and much more.
