Experienced, creative, reliable freelance content creator, from copywriting to e-commerce to long-form editorial. I write and edit from my base in Berlin for global clients including the BBC, National Geographic, Conde Nast, Glamour, and other top publications. I also create content for creative agencies and PR firms. Speciality areas include culture, style/beauty, e-commerce, travel, wine/spirits, and more.

I'm always looking for creative projects to work on, whether it's brand writing or an editorial-style series to dig into.
