  • About me: I came to the Netherlands 26 years ago, for one year. Now, I am about to take on the Dutch nationality, while keeping my British passport. After at least 15 years working as a translator/editor and ten years of translating bulletins and writing articles on Dutch current affairs for Radio Netherlands Worldwide, I feel I know the Netherlands inside out. In addition, I'm a radio junkie and a news addict. I can turn my hand to any subject, but my preferences lie with Dutch current affairs, politics, business, culture and society.
