Freelance radio, print and online journalist with ten years experience. After working for the BBC World Service in London for five years I moved my base to Hamburg in early 2011. From here I cover Hamburg and northern Germany for international organisations including Deutsche Welle Radio and Online and the BBC as well as for German broadcasters. Happy to travel, both nationally and internationally.
