I love studying. I’m a nerd. But if you look at the topics that I am studying and have worked in, you will have to agree that I am a cool nerd.

Please have a look at my qualifications and membership to make certain that I know what I am talking about (in some fields, at least) such as communication, the media, coaching, media literacy, creativity, translation, editing and proofreading, and writing.
