Overview

As a freelance journalist I am looking to expand my portfolio with foreign assignments.

I have mostly written for local newspapers and have been editor in chief of a small local weekly newspaper that had a circulation of about 7,500.

I have my roots in web development. This means I am also confident with WordPress and other content management systems. Besides that, I code in html, css and a couple of programming/scripting languages. Actually, this is another service I still provide.

My interests are amongst others Portugal, politics,...

Service Description

I've done both writing and web development jobs. I've been an editor for a local newspaper owned by Telegraaf Media Group (TMG), editor for a starting online Dutch showbizz magazine and I have been co-writer on some ICT related research reports.

I also was a webmaster for several large websites including the KPMG corporate website and a niche working conditions related website, which was funded by the EU. Besides that, as a sole proprietor I develop websites for clients.

I am aware that writing and programming seems a strange combination to many. But I see it as a benefit to my customers since I can offer a complete solution: content and technology.
