Professional Experience

I'm great at writing clearly about complicated topics, making boring things interesting and finding new angles for tired stories. I'm from Canada, but have lived for 6 years in Germany. Main topics are art, culture, design, architecture and music, but I've also filed travel stories and hard news. I don't work for free.
