Why I do it

I am an editorial project manager and educational consultant with an organized mind, a sharp pen and international expertise.

 

 

I commission, design, edit and evaluate multimodal digital content that is informative, instructive and entertaining.

 

 

I have a passion for education being fun. A motivated learner is a more efficient learner, and let's be honest: Who has time to waste?

So, what’s the secret sauce?

A relentless passion for what I do, a healthy dose of pedantry to make sure it gets done right, some good-natured pragmatism to make it work, and a touch of perfectionism that will not let me rest until I have done the absolutely best work possible under any given circumstances.

No excuses. Just progress.
