Journalist & Broadcaster

About Me

I'm an award-winning multimedia journalist currently based in New England. In addition to freelancing I work as a host for WCRB, cover privacy and tech for Digital Trends, and I'm the creator of "Not Viral News!", the news show that covers everything except coronavirus.

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 US embassy moving to Jerusalem, the immigrant experience in the US and in Germany, and much more.
