Journalist & Creative Writer
I'm a creative writer turned journalist. From mobility and electrification, to business, tech and crypto, to biodiversity and conservation, my reporting touches on a wide range of topics, but my overarching focus is on stories that illustrate the impacts of human activity on the environment. My writing has appeared in Grist, Business Insider, Deutsche Welle (DW News), Earth Island Journal, Huff Post, SF GATE, The Parliament Magazine, The New Internationalist, and others.
I'm currently based in Berlin where I earned a MA in journalism from HMKW. I wrote my thesis on strategies for more effective journalism on climate change. I previously earned a BA in creative writing at the University of San Francisco.
I've amassed 3+ years of editorial experience, primarily as a freelance reporter and writer, as well as 3 years of experience as a copywriter for a handful of Berlin and San Francisco based start-ups.
I previously lived for 2.5 years in South Korea, and spent one semester of my undergraduate studies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania before that. I particularly enjoy projects that allow me to interview people from different walks of life.
I'm open to being contacted about journalistic and creative writing projects.
