my resume

'cause experience matters

Professional info

My strong background in Psychology and Social Sciences has hugely influenced my career as a Journalist. I can look at the same subject in many different ways, exploring its layers and challenging the assumptions around it. That’s my greatest joy as an Editor and Writer - to create thought-provoking content that sheds light on the traps, gaps and contradictions of social conventions.
