I am a Riga-based writing and broadcast journalist reporting in Latvian and English.
I work as a Latvia correspondent for Reuters, the world's largest international multimedia news agency. As a freelance radio reporter, I deliver radio features to the English service of Germany’s international broadcaster Deutsche Welle in Bonn.
I also work as a freelance fixer in Latvia. I have been fixing for the BBC World Service, BBC Scotland TV, BBC East Midlands Today, ITN, The New York Times, The Economist and others.
I have a bachelor's degree in public relations and a master’s in radio journalism, which I earned at Goldsmiths College in London in 2007. I completed a work experience at the BBC World Service programme "Europe Today" at that time.
I was named "best TV journalist in Latvia" in 2008 during the competition “The Hope of Journalism.”
