There’s a certain thrill in taking an idea and a handful of facts and after some time – bam! – suddenly seeing a story unfolding in your mind, that lively retells the initial thing with intrigue, graphics, and real or even fantastic situations. And there’s also a joy in coming up with a question nobody has asked before – and exploring it.
These are the magic moments of a scriptwriter’s professional life at CyberNews.com. There is also an earthly part to it, made of some perfectionism in English language and fact-checking and eagerness to dive deeper into the field of cybersecurity.
If you can translate Geek’ish to English to YouTube’ish and back, if you like people in general and teamwork in particular, and if you’ve mastered storytelling to keep even the attention of a goldfish up to 30 s., we’ll be a match.
