Though my focus is writing about French cuisine, wine and travel, I have also reported on many other subjects.

FROM FRANCE TO FASHION… AND EVEN TRANSLATING!
Editing magazines and managing a team of writers. Reporting on fashion, art, heritage and lifestyle. Interviewing awesome people (I will never forget drinking wine with Olga Rodionova at her apartment on Herengracht in Amsterdam or chatting with stylist to the stars Danie Bles). Creating awesome advertorials that make companies shine. Reviewing the best restaurants. And even translating texts for leading Dutch publishing houses and newspapers. I’ve done it all!
Here’s more… and how you can get in touch. Below, a selection of samples…  and this time, not about France!
