Let's start...

My first article was published when I was 16 in a small provincial newspaper. Since that time I wrote more often and worked in different media: TV, radio, newspaper, news agencies, online media, communication agency.

I can work in a daily newspaper and write as fast as possible, but mostly prefer to explore the topic longer and use different lenses to look at it. Below you can find links on samples of my work and full CV.
