Since joining Politico in 2015, I've profiled a dozen decision-makers, from potential future world leaders to forgotten pioneers. Here are some of those profiles:


The man who invented the self-driving car (in 1986). Long before Big Tech got behind the wheel, Ernst Dickmanns unleashed a driverless Mercedes onto the roads of Europe. (Politico, July 19, 2018)

The young, gay, conservative German chancellor-in-waiting. Jens Spahn is positioning himself, with no apologies, to take Angela Merkel’s seat. (Politico, May 12, 2016)

The way of the German privacy warrior. Former justice minister doesn’t buy the liberty vs. security argument. (Politico, April 18, 2016)

The climate revolutionary. Christiana Figueres blends tact, emotion and a bit of bullying to get deep emissions cuts in Paris next month. (November 10, 2015)
