He has most recently worked as an editor and correspondent for Handelsblatt Global in Berlin, covering a range of issues including politics, finance and economics. Before that he worked for the financial news agency MNI (Market News International) out of Frankfurt and as a U.S. correspondent in Washington D.C. for the German Press Agency dpa. A native English and German speaker, Chris graduated from the University of York in England and the London School of Journalism, and recently completed a course in political psychology at Stanford.

This program was made possible by a generous grant to the American Council on Germany through the European Recovery Program – Transatlantic Encounters 

About the American Council on Germany:

The Eric M. Warburg Chapters of the American Council on Germany provide members and the general public around the United States with a dynamic forum for discussing economic, political, and social issues on the transatlantic agenda. 

There is a strong, active and close-knit community of German-Americans in Minnesota and the Minneapolis/St. Paul Warburg Chapter is a critical component of the network of German-American organizations in Minnesota.  The chapter provides programming for events conducted by the German-American Chamber of Commerce (GACC); Germanic-American Institute and the Honorary Consul and works in cooperation with the German Immersion School and the Center for German and European Studies.
