Having lived and studied in three different countries in Northern Europe, I’ve become particularly fond of the Baltic Sea Region. It’s a particularly rich and exciting region in Europe, that offers manifold opportunities. I’ve had the chance to get insights into a large number of media, research, governmental and cultural actors throughout the region. My translations cover the languages Danish, English and German, currently I’m working on the fourth language: Estonian. Moreover my experience as an author for online media has equipped me with the skill to put the right words to what needs to be told. I offer:
