Creativity + Expertise

With 20 years of writing experience, I marry creativity with expertise across a range of content, styles and tones. Available on a hourly, project or retainer basis, I'd be happy to discuss your company's specific communications needs and develop a plan for maximum impact in your target areas.

Journalism

My writing portfolio includes interviews, columns, and critiques that run the gamut from truffle hunting adventures in Dordogne to evaluating the status of maternal health clinics in rural Madagascar. Assignments in the business, culture, public health, travel and luxury sectors have appeared in English, French and German for TIME, Random House, Fodor’s guidebooks, Swiss News, Gstaad Life, Equities magazine and the Anzeiger von Saanen, amongst other publications.

Corporate Communications

Over more than a decade in the corporate communications world, my services as a writer, editor and copywriter have been retained by leading international organisations and private companies such as Swatch, the International Federation of the Red Cross, Vestergaard and the World Economic Forum. I've created and implemented detailed PR strategies, managing large teams of freelancers, translators and designers to produce meaningful communications materials that resonate directly with stakeholders. Via my extensive professional network, I've ensured clients were promoted across digital and print media worldwide including in Der Spiegel, Le Temps, CNN, BBC, The New York Times, and Financial Times.
