About me

I write engaging copy in two languages, carefully tuning my tone to my audience. I enjoy creating social initiatives, solving problems and encouraging random strangers to play with weird ideas. In a fast-paced environment, I remain calm and efficient. I have a background in literary science and cultural journalism, and I thrive when I can indulge in my love of words.
