WHAT I DO
Freelance, accredited journalist who since obtaining a postgraduate at the London School of Journalism in 2003 has been writing background articles in both Dutch and English for a variety of commissioning clients and publishers, in both print as online media. Addional translation and commercial text writing services (Dutch/ English).
Specialised in writing for niche markets for a wide range mixed readerships around the world, mainly for B2B, business and specialist trade magazines.
Background features are written for a variety of readerships made up of a mix of professionals that work all over the world. Global readerships in for example medical aviation, both military and civil, as well as health, fitness and leisure management. Topics include the latest legal, technological or sector developments in these areas.
Additional services: Translation, commercial texts, press releases (English/ Dutch)
Multi-lingual: Having lived and worked in both The Netherlands and the United Kingdom (27 years), I work in both languages.
All-round media experience: Media background such as TV news camera operator and teaching at the London School of Journalism.
Skills: The features I work on are objective, balanced, well researched and include specialist interviews. I enjoy the whole process and the final moulding of the article, and to be able to learn about a new subject. Articles for trade magazines need to have depth, but remain comprehensible to an often mixed readership.
