About Me

I'm an award-winning multimedia journalist currently based in New England. I'm currently a freelance producer with WBUR working on Radio Boston, a daily, news-driven radio show. Previously I was host and producer for "And Another Thing" on New England Public Media, and a host for WCRB, Boston's classic music station.

I spent around five years worked for DW News/Deutsche Welle, Germany's international broadcaster, 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, the 2017 inauguration riots, Hurricane Florence, ​the US embassy moving to Jerusalem, the immigrant experience in the US and in Germany, and much more. I've been published in the Washington Post, the Atlantic, the Daily Beast, Gawker, Business Insider, among others, covering everything from the UN Security Council, to educational technology and privacy, to New York's dating culture.
