What was your first job as a journalist?
I trained at a Bavarian radio station. Coming from Berlin I probably got the job because I speak German without Bavarian accent (no offense).
Have you ever used a typewriter?
Yes, to design gift wrap.
How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?
Short emails that don't begin with "embargoed", "breaking news", or "exclusive". Include a phone number (apparently that's not a given).
