I’m Grace Dobush, an American-born freelance journalist based in Germany and operating worldwide. My current work tends to fall in the intersection of business, technology and politics. I’m especially interested in mobility, cities, German business and the creative economy.
I’ve written for publications including Fortune, Handelsblatt Today, Huffington Post, Wired, Quartz and Roll Call. I’ve also done content work for companies and organizations including Cisco, Mozilla, Autodesk, the Urban Land Institute, the Consumer Tech Association and Robert Half International.
But I don’t only work with text: I’ve appeared as a commentator in international media outlets including Deutsche Welle and BBC News Hour, and I've moderated panels and conferences in the US and Germany.
