Emmet in a few words

I'm the English-language correspondent for Agence France-Presse in West Africa, covering news from nine countries in the region.

This involves writing flawless copy to tight deadlines, as well as translating perfectly from French to English. Previously, I worked as a reporter at Politico Europe in Brussels.

In addition to journalism, I have done regular copyediting and proofreading work for international clients such as the Literary Review of Canada and the Times Educational Supplement.

I have also written corporate copy for tech clients, notably for the Berlin-based strategic design consultancy DK&A.
