Academic interests: Beyond the mandatory areas of my education, my focus has been on the below areas:
· Organizational communication
· Political communication
· Intercultural management and decision making.
· Knowledge management
· Language policies
Beyond the above areas of interest of educational character, I am fascinated by the way that language influences the way we perceive and act on information and different phenomena. This has built the foundation for my interest in NLP, sales, marketing etc.
IT skills: I am an experienced user of the main part of the MS Office suite, and I have extensive experience in the use of translation and terminology software. I easily acquire new knowledge and adapt to new programs. Furthermore I am very interested in programs to increase or ease the workflow or flow of information.
Extra curricular activities:
The main part of my spare time I divide between:
b) Sports (running, weight training, Wing Tsun (self defense))
c) Expanding my knowledge on communication, NLP and personal development.
d) Establishing my own translation office.
