I am a news editor with the Wall Street Journal’s CFO Journal, covering corporate finance. I write about bond issuances, corporate debt, financial planning, tax, treasury and CFO-appointments.
I relocated to the U.S. in July 2019 after nearly three years with the WSJ in London, during which I covered corporate finance at European and British companies.
Prior to my time with the WSJ, I worked as a U.K. Business and Finance Correspondent for German media group Welt. I took on this job in August 2013, after my return from Shanghai, where I covered business and finance at Chinese and international firms.
Prior to my time in China, I underwent journalistic training with Welt in Berlin and worked for several local publications in Germany. In 2012, I was awarded the “Georg von Holtzbrinck Preis für Wirtschaftspublizistik”—a prize for business reporting—for a story about surging pig exports to China.
I studied Political Science, Modern History and American Studies at Bonn University in Germany and Georgetown University in the U.S. I also received a double masters degree in Media and Global Communications from the London School of Economics and Fudan University in Shanghai.
