    Phenomenal Words

    Born in the UK, Phoebe grew up in Paris and returned to the UK for her secondary education and university, where she read French and German literature at Oxford, Bonn and Hamburg universities. She has worked in communications roles at energy group EDF in France and the UK, and for the cultural attaché at the French Embassy in London. In 2012, she undertook a solo tour of Russia and Asia for ten months, photographing dustbins across a dozen countries, and producing an exhibition shown in Paris, soon in Berlin, which she is now turning into a book. She works freelance as a writer, translator, facilitator and consultant mainly on sustainability issues, dividing her time between Paris and Berlin. Her interests include singing, cycling, the Arts and new words.
