Welcome to my blog, I am happy you are interested in my work! Please find some information below about me and my articles.

I have been working as a freelance journalist since 2006, based in Berlin. I speak Spanish and English fluently and work in both languages.
I have started working at the German FAZ and the Swiss NZZ writing about economic and work-related topics and human interest stories. I moved on to specialise in investigative journalism. I did work quite a lot about (catholic) church, mainly its financial system and sexual abuse issues. Lately though I have been focussing more on computer security and national security topics. To research those subjects normally takes me some time (often months), so in between I also like to do reports and features about inspiring people, interesting business or career and HR-models.
If you are interested in my work, have a look below. You will find a selection of articles. Most are in German, but some, for example, for The Times, The German Times, The Atlantic Times I publish in English.
I mostly work for the SPIEGEL (Hamburg/Berlin, Germany), the ZEIT (Hamburg), the Handelszeitung (Zurich) and the German television ARD (Hamburg/Berlin).

About my articles
Here you will find several pieces of my work in English, I hope you enjoy reading them! You can read more articles in German at the page “Artikel” on this blog.
Please note that I always try to update my articles as best as I can, but sometimes I am behind due to being busy writing the new works…
I was in the happy situation being able to “ambush” the Swedish beststelling author Mr. Henning Mankell on the street in front of Babylon Cinema (in Berlin), and with his very spontenous and kind agreement to interview him for The Times (London) about the Israelian attack on the flotilla end of May.
As the TIMES articles need to be payed for now, please excuse that I cannot provide you with a copy of the interview. However you can look it up yourself, if you are interested! The article was published June 5, 2010.
Articles in Icelandic:
Ah, well, and two articles have been kindly translated by Karl Böndal into Icelandic for the Morgunbladid, where I was allowed to stay in spring 2012 (a great experience!), due to a bursary. (On the page “Artikel” on this blog, I have published the German manuscripts of both texts.)
– So for Icelandic readers :), have a look here:
