I performed SEO content management with a focus on translation and localisation. I also led creative programming classes for children, provided customer educational support for adult code learners, and taught English in a vocational school.
I wrote and edited data analyses and industry overviews for a B2B audience to boost search engine ranking on graphics & charts with a team of market researchers.
I led classes and workshops across Europe, completed a Cambridge CELTA certification in teaching ESOL, and supported bilingual development in kindergartens and after-school programs.
I wrote copy, coordinated social media, and initiated community outreach as the sole employee of an independent art & design bookstore.
In Atlanta, I led a weekly grade 2 reading session and observed classes in Spanish, coding, movement, handwork, and gardening.
In Richmond (VA), I trained as a backup teacher in primary classes and care shifts.
I wrote articles on SEO best practices and content creation for an audience of marketers. I also managed metadata and WordPress uploads for company clients.

Short film "Myth of Purity" produced as part of a dual thesis in intellectual history and media art on the philosopher Simone Weil
Began in 2021 as short fiction and now experimenting with using version control via GitHub as a tool for editing a longer literary work. The idea behind this is also in progress...
(i.e. is using GitHub here just a tool for me as a writer? is the point of making it public more of a personal goal to overcome perfectionism but I don't expect an audience, or can I explore what "open source" could mean in an art context?)
Personal effort to publish and document exercises and experiments in code and design as well as become active participant and resource in learning groups and platforms.
