I have three ways of looking at the world: communication, information, and education.
This means that I can’t have a casual relationship with street signs, mobile interfaces, textbooks, or museum exhibitions. Sometimes they keep me up at night. I lie in bed matching strings of words across languages, painting pictures in my mind, and wondering about the basic concepts we base other learning on. Luckily I get to wake up every morning and put my mind to work on these very same things. Every day I try to make a small corner of the world easier to understand.
This page lists the qualifications I have completed and the volunteer work I am involved with in my endeavour to better understand communication, information, and education. You can learn more about my professional profile on LinkedIn. If you have a project that needs a keen eye and a brain trained to optimise messages, get in touch with me via this simple contact form.
