Global DNA. You can hear the native speaker in his voice: Terms like “e-mail” sound exactly as they should from Dierk Schlosshan’s mouth. Whether it’s because of his Australian mother, his childhood in New York City or his years in London … who knows? Presumably, internationality is in his DNA – because his children also live scattered over several continents today.
