Resume/C.V.

Journalist-Writer-Proofreader-Photographer
Self-motivated and experienced journalist with over 5 years experience working in printed press and the Internet.
Bilingual French/English, I can work and communicate in either language. I have an extensive experience working on the web and new media. I took pictures and produced numerous articles for print and web publishing. I also made and edited video reports, as well as managed newspapers’ social media accounts.
Truly interested in economics, finance and business, I did my internship in the Business department of the national French newspaper Le Monde, where I wrote and edited briefs. Meanwhile, I started a blog about finance and macro-economics titled Macrofinactu. I also contributed to a website about the European debt crisis, Eurocuej, for which I wrote articles and reported from Brussels.
