I am a professional business journalist, based in Sydney, Australia. Editor of Telecom Times, a new online portal aimed at presenting news, updates and insights relating to the wider telecommunications industry. Most recently, I was Assistant Editor at Communications Day, a high-profile source of telecoms news in Australia, New Zealand and the broader Asia-Pacific region. As part of my skillset, I sourced, wrote and edited articles, primarily reporting on developments in telecoms. In addition, I am an experienced translator English-Dutch, native Dutch speaker and fully bilingual. Current freelance activities include contributing to Ciena's corporate Insights blog, providing editing services for Australian online triathlon publication Trizone, along with specialist subtitling translation services for outlets such as Netflix and Dreamworks. Other skills include online marketing administration, voice over services, proofreading and transcription.
