Old Media and New Media Meet. I am a content strategist and front-end web developer, a multilingual journalist, writer and editor (both offline and online). Good content matters, across platforms and across cultures — no matter the medium.

Many journalists have both feet firmly planted in new and old media by now. I acquired those skills early on, however: I hand-coded my first website in 1995. What sets me apart is that I am a journalist with traditional editorial values at heart, who is eager to embrace new technologies to drive and develop good content. And sometimes, less is more. I am creative, easily adapt to new challenges, a quick study who gets things done. I take ownership but am a humble team player at the same time.

These are exciting times for communications: Old media hold value. New media add value. This is not an either/or situation. Offline and online media won’t work on their own. We need both, and I bridge the gap.
