My content approach is based on design thinking principles and a UX perspective. I have been particularly active as a writer, editor, researcher, and strategist in the Dutch Design scene including Dutch Design Week, Dutch Cuisine, and the Design Academy Eindhoven. I write ebooks, museum exhibition texts, magazine articles, web copy, blog posts, social media posts, email correspondence, educational course descriptions, event invitations, press releases, and more. Beyond creating original content, my services include proofreading, copyediting, graphic design, ghost writing, and branding. My rates are based on the Editorial Freelancers Association Editorial Rate Chart.

The STRP Biennial takes place in Eindhoven and is the largest creative technology event in the Netherlands. The original translation was by a native Dutch speaker. I used the original Dutch text and the first English translation draft in combination to create an improved text for the English version of the official website.
