As a poet, writer and journalist, I offer articles for newspapers and magazines. These are background reports and portraits about people and what matters to them.
I design websites for small companies, the self-employed and associations, but also books and advertising media (covers, layouts, posters, flyers, brochures, programmes).
Literature and poetry are the results of my own efforts. I offer rights of use. You can book me for readings and talks.
