– trainer, journalist
For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in stories. In my primary school essays, I plagiarised and remixed my favourite children’s books, much like other kids took radios apart and reassembled them to find out how they work. I quit plagiarising soon enough, but I have never stopped writing. As a student of the history of science, I developed an eye for the importance of storytelling in all branches of science. My studies also got me acquainted with various academic vocabularies. Having subsequently worked in science journalism for several years, I am now a seasoned translator of complex information into accessible stories. And as a trainer, I enjoy helping others tell their stories as much as telling stories myself.
