I started my way into journalism in Paris in 2005, as an online editor of what could be called today, a start up of European journalism : cafebabel.com was and is still today the leading online magazine about Europe.

But back then, the media industry wasn’t really convinced that any digital revolution was coming. cafebabel was a great chance the learn to cover the concerns of the Erasmus generation and to run an online magazine published in seven languages (french, english, german, spanish, italian, polish and catalan), entirely community-based. After three years of intense work (and lots of fun), I decided to leave because I couldn’t figure out doing journalism while sitting behind a desk.

I moved to Berlin in 2008 and started freelancing for various projects. Reportages for print magazines, development of multimedia long-read, editorial consultancy, media training, cross-border investigations, corporate work or writing of non fiction book…I keep the start-up mindset. From time to time, I am also invited to conferences (New York Times Athens Democracy Forum, Forum of Young Leaders…) as a guest speaker to talk about journalism and other things.

Here is a list of a those different missions I was glad to contribute to.
