I’m a creative writer and communications specialist, skilled at reaching the hearts of audiences through print, digital and social platforms. I’m based in Amsterdam – where, for the past six years I’ve been between creative, cultural and fashion industries; crafting copy, developing an editorial eye, and gaining unique brand experience.
I love crafting original and surprising stories through my passions for arts and culture, sports (football), fashion and sustainable innovation. I currently work with International Film Festival Rotterdam, and as an editor of SEASON zine, an independent football fanzine/fashion magazine.
With my spare time I like to be in water, swimming laps, and further feeding my interests studying a short course in Sports Writing by the London School of Journalism. Recently, I began working on a personal ‘archive’ project, which will (eventually) tell the stories of female sports fans or athletes, through objects, clothing and ephemera. More information to follow soon.
Interested in working together?
I can help with copywriting, brand communications and brand story, editorial writing and direction (books, magazines and online), copyediting, content planning/production, community management (making social channels sparkle), and more.
