Bio
A flair for creativity. A zeal for writing. An appetite for improvement. A hunger for excellence
I NEED A GOOD COPY. FAST

You have a challenge. Translation, transcreation, copywriting? I see. Then you've come to the right place. You want your clients to sing laurels about your work and, sure, you want to be cut above your competitors. Who wouldn't. You probably need a copywriter or journalist. Better both. Someone who is not afraid to change things around to make a copy bold and strike a chord with the reader. That could be arranged. Actually, it already is. I'm right here, at your service.

COULD YOU CONVINCE ME?

Wearing my hats of linguist, journalist and copywriter, I know my fair share of the written word.

My focus is on:

• Advertising & PR
• Corporate and marketing communications
• Journalism & Literature

... and I cover these sectors:

• Media & Entertainment (+ video games)
• Internet & E-Commerce
• Tourism & Hospitality
• Sports, Recreation & Leisure
• Fashion & Design
• Government & Military


Working hand in hand with some of the best EDITORS and COPYWRITERS for 10+ years gave me all the know-how to craft captivating stories.

HAVE A LOOK AT MY SPECIALITIES and MY TRIUMPHS

WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?

• Working with someone who is interested in getting measurable results, not just in getting paid

• Working with someone who is willing to go extra mile to please your clients

Free advice on how certain cultural and linguistic pitfalls can be avoided; occasional freebies

• The relief of knowing a project will be followed up all the way until it is fully implemented

• Freedom from having to wait hours until your email is answered (all queries are answered within 15 min)

• Less hassle finding a one-stop shop for TEP + DTP services

• The confidence that you will NEVER EVER let you client down

SKILLS AT A GLANCE

• A proficient wordsmith with a love of storytelling and a facility for authoring sustainable, engaging narratives

• Know my advertorials from my editorials; can both create a funny, catchy copy and artfully insert persuasion in the fact-based content

• Know what it takes to whet the reader's appetite; my writings have a sparkle and their own voice

Have a good sense of style and rich vocabulary; able to preserve local nuances and convey a message effectively

• Familiar with local customs and culture; able to provide advice on cultural, ethnic, religious, and political issues

• Have a sharp wit and can brainstorm ideas and think out of the box

ANY QUESTIONS AT ANY STAGE, GIVE ME A SHOUT!
