PC’s Pixels and Posts is centered around Journalism. It contains little lessons I learned on the job, pieces, experiments towards the future of journalism and also some stories from my travels.
I started this blog on a Fulbright in a class by Kathy Gill at the University of Washington in 2009: “Digital Journalism“. I wrote “News Media on Twitter” for her book Businesses L.E.A.P. into Twitter that has yet to be published.
I completed my MA in American Studies, Political Science and Film Studies at the University of Mainz, Germany in November 2011.
My thesis “After the Death of Journalism in the US: Reinventing Reporting on the Web” is an analysis of the changing practices within investigative journalism in the US through online culture. You can can read the German Summary if you like or contact me for the original.
My works have aired at Deutsche Welle TV, SWR-Fernsehen and YouTube ;) as well as Südwestrundfunk (SWR), Radio Berlin Brandenburg (RBB Inforadio), Schweizer Rundfunk (SRF).
You might have also seen words of mine NZZ am Sonntag, Finanztest, Test, Rhein-Zeitung or at Zeit Online, Geo.de, test.de, dw.de, Handelszeitung, EMS Blog and HOWL Magazine. For work samples, check out this blog and my Portfolio.
