writer. editor. translator.
Hi, I’m Courtney.
I’m an award-winning writer and editor. My arts, culture, and travel stories have appeared in Harper’s Bazaar, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Romper, The Cut, Marie Claire, Artsy, The Art Newspaper, and afar, among others.
Writing is my first love and I enjoy sharing stories about arts, culture, and my favorite places in Europe. As a ghostwriter, I also do content and copy writing for organizations looking to get the word out on their sustainable development initiatives and academics focusing on climate change research.
A former media and culture editor, I have nearly 20 years of experience in developmental and line editing as well as proofreading. I love working with authors and academics to shape their book and essay-length manuscripts. I also support businesses across Europe by polishing their English-language communications.
Fluent in German but amazing at English, I transcreate and localize annual reports, grant applications, blog posts, newsletters, web copy, and social media texts to ensure the translation from German to English reads like new copy.
