Professional Experience

Good writing is a skill and I've honed mine for more than 30 years as a financial journalist, I can take on virtually any assignment in business or economics, from personal finance to arcane B2B subjects. I've also written on politics, books, foreign relations and numerous cultural topics. My experience includes a strong background in editing, copy editing, training and translating (from French and German).
