I live in London, together with my New Zealand wife, Kerry Anne, and our 7 month old son, Thomas.
Born in Germany, I am half German/British, I am a senior correspondent for Reuters. My work has taken me onassignments in Europe, Colombia, the Middle East and East Timor. I studied history and politics at Humbold University in Berlin and at Sorbonne in Paris. My main interests are getting to know places and people, meeting friends old and new, and current affairs (I'm a journo, remember...). I'm tidy, chatty and reliable.
