Great question, and thanks for pushing me into participating more It’s been a bit hectic. So what am I working on and what is my background?
Just some key words: intercultural and international communications, copywriting, translation studies, social media. I’ve applied my knowledge and experience in these fields to a wide variety of topics / businesses, some of them still have my interest (engineering, geology, infrastructure, IT). Being trained as a linguist, I am somewhat of a language geek, always easily distracted by etymology, language acquisition and puns I speak 3 to 5 languages (depending on your definition of fluency).
And then there is music. Of course. Always a song in my head. I used to play several instruments (mainly trombone, saxophone) and my first (great!) community experiences were in a Tom Waits fan community. Other key ingredients: Beatles, spotify surprises, radio.
