How about combining pedantry with pragmatism and a Plan B? Let's get the word out and get it done - and most importantly: Let's make it fun!
Who I am
What I do
Why I do it
I am an editorial project manager and educational consultant with an organized mind, a sharp pen and international expertise in deadline-driven, multilingual work environments.
I supervise, commission, design, edit and evaluate the production of multimodal digital content that is informative, instructive and entertaining.
I have an eye for detail, a knack for writing and 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.
