Hi, I'm Deborah Gouffran

Journalist, TV News Producer, Digital Content Creator

Bilingual French/English, I’m currently based in Paris after living in London, New York, and California.

A regular contributor to The Associated Press Television (APTN), PBS and SNTV, my stories have also appeared on The Washington Post, ABC News, Al-Jazeera English, the BBC, France Televisions, The (Boston) Globe, Vice…

Self-starter and a strong team player, I’m used to managing tight deadlines and complex logistics.

From world summits to terrorist attacks, world cups to fashion weeks, I’ve covered the major news, sports and entertainment events of the past two decades with equal parts curiosity, dedication and creativity.

I’m passionate about human rights/social injustice, online privacy and environmental issues.

In my spare time, I run Le Studio x DG, a digital creative agency specialised in branding and web design for female entrepreneurs and writers.
