With a background in journalism and journalism research I offer both courses and coaching. My approach is research-based, but practice-centred, as I am not particularly interested in abstract theories about practising journalism, but deeply engaged in educating and cultivating brillant journalists and journalism. You can use theories as stepping stones, but you will not be able to act from theory alone.
Freelancing with what I can sell;-)
