Correspondent / Foreign Editor
I currently work as a freelance correspondent, regional analyst and photo-journalist from conflict zones of the world, mainly from Afghanistan in the past fifteen years, for national and international media, radio and the national German printing press. Previously a senior editor, presenter and reporter with Deutschlandfunk and its reknown morning show Informationen am Morgen, Germany’s radio program with BBC quality standards, my current work now gravitates to producing a constructive form of journalism and cross-media projects that look beyond the cliché we find in Western media with regard to current conflicts. My Afghanistan Blog for instance gives a voice to a local population and experts from within Afghanistan often silenced, allowing for a fresh eye on one of he many international conflicts and war zones.
