About me

Hello! My name is Iris and I am a freelance journalist originally from the Netherlands, but currently dividing my time between Saint Petersburg and Berlin. Mostly writing about arts, culture, and human interest, I am the proud co-founder and head writer of Post Pravda magazine. Always excited to discover different kinds of media, I love playing with language to adapt to different audiences, styles, and needs. I look forward to hearing from you!
