Susann Remke is a Senior US Correspondent for FOCUS Magazine, Hubert Burda Media's flagship newsweekly, based in its New York office. She started her job at FOCUS six days before September 11th, 2001. After covering terrorism-related stories for her first year she moved back to her initial beats: social issues, entertainment, fashion and literature. Susann has interviewed numerous celebrities, CEOs and artists from eBay's Meg Whitman to The Rolling Stones.
She has a Master's Degree in British and American Literature and previously worked for DIE WELT, Welt am Sonntag, dpa and The Miami Herald. As an early adopter, she moved to what is now hipster Brooklyn in 2001 and is happily living a bridge-and-tunnel life with her husband, her son and her two cats ever since.
