Freelance journalist, Brussels (EN)

I have worked as a journalist for 20 years in Dublin. During that time I have accumulated experience in different forms of the editorial process from print to digital at all scales and audiences. My writing style has been kindly described as clear and easy to read.

My published work appears in magazines, newspapers, trade publications, books, websites, e-commerce stores,  blogs and social media. A natural team leader, I have been asked to provide editorial oversight of digital and print editorial teams to create, deliver and distribute high quality content. 

Whether writing hard news or entertaining colour pieces, I am motivated to create good writing, whatever the assignment. I also consider the audience when I write as without them, we journalists have nothing. 

The story comes first and foremost but digital distribution amplifies the message and reaches a wider audience.

As an editor, I have experience with planning an entire publication in digital or print, sub-editing and stakeholder engagement with designers, sales people, publishers, top executives and others.

I am an independent worker or freelance journalist seeking suitable opportunities in Brussels (EN) to build on my editorial experience writing news, features, interviews, headlines and blogs.
