Journalist, digital media producer and interactive story designer, Gerald Holubowicz is currently working at Racontr.com as Content Manager and Digital Project Manager. He’s the founder of Storydesign.fr a side project about design & journalism where he studies the interconnection of News and Digital Storytelling. For about 4 years, he’s been the president of Storycode Paris (a group focusing on digital storytelling and digital transformation of societies) that he co-founded back in 2012.

Previously, Gerald has worked as photojournalist for more than 12 years for various world renowned photo agencies such as Laif, Polaris images or Abaca in France and in the U.S, covering political, economical and entertainment news. A career that provided him with a well rounded understanding of how to bridge the gap between visual journalism, technology & storytelling.

He's been the lead author and co-director of "Moneyocracy" a Transmedia documentary about Political Campaign Finance Laws in the U.S (www.moneyocracy-project.com) published on "Lemonde.fr" in 2012 and available on Hulu.com. Later, his work on the interactive documentary "Grozny: 9 Cities" lead him to receive the 2014 Web Journalism Trophy at the prestigious Bayeux War Correspondent Festival.

Since 2010, he's committed to share his passion for journalism, storytelling and new media and teaches interactive storytelling and interactive journalism courses in various schools such as the Journalism school of Sciences Po Paris, Sciences Po Annecy (Transmedia Master degree), the CFJ and CFPJ schools (Paris), INA (French National Institute of Audiovisual), the EJDG journalism school of the Stendhal University (in Grenoble) and at EMI-CFD Paris among others.
