Although I initially obtained an official diploma to be a tourist (worker), at heart I am a trained and experienced news journalist turned into a radio correspondent and TV team fixer, turned into a digital and print content creator. In short, I like to talk to people, consider making potentially boring stuff interesting a great challenge, and structure & tweak websites. Away from the job, I love to explore more of Europe.
