Daniel Dieb

Community Manager, Portuguese

Newspapers and magazines have been part of my daily reading habit since I was a kid in São Paulo, Brazil. But when I graduated from school, I didn’t see journalism as a possible career. I studied business administration for a year, “crashing” journalism classes because I liked them more.

Years later, I finally enrolled in  journalism school. The media industry was already in crisis, trying not only to sustain its business models, but also find its reason for being in a connected world.

This challenge was one of my main motivations for becoming a professional journalist, and it is still an incentive for my work. One of the ways I think I can collaborate is by helping others do a better job.

I have been working for ICFJ since 2020. My trajectory here is related to two programs: the Portuguese-language edition of the Pamela Howard Forum on Global Crisis Reporting and the Accelerating Digital Business in Brazil initiative.

My background:

I have published articles on a variety of different subjects, such as science, health, tech and culture. I also have worked on the homepage, newsletter and social media desks. Folha de S.Paulo, UOL, Veja and Meio are some of the media outlets that I have worked with. Besides that, I was a researcher for a year and wrote two papers: one about science journalism and communication, another about education and technology.

Ask me about:

Football (not the American kind), growing plants, geopolitics and music.
