I’m a business and tech reporter and former Silicon Valley correspondent with 15 years of experience in digital journalism, experience in creating and running businesses as a founder and interim CEO, product management and project management. I created the online business magazine Fillmore and recently built digital platforms and products and at the media startup Addendum. I’m also the founder and chairwoman of Digitalista, a women’s network that has received several national awards. My work has been published in international publications, such as Wired Germany, Spiegel, t3n and Der Standard. On a more personal note, I sometimes write personal blog posts over at Medium.

I’ve recently started writing a business newsletter in German. Subscribe below and find recent posts on my Substack page.
