I’m originally from Washington, D.C. but have lived in Europe for over half of my life. Before my first stint with the radio (2004-2006), I worked for a Japanese newspaper in New York, and then as a Balkans stringer and EU correspondent for a news agency. Later, I was Prague bureau chief of yet another agency. But the radio was always close to my heart – and I was happy to return in 2018. I especially enjoy doing human interest stories and delving into lesser-known chapters of Czech history.
