I work in international development and am committed to making the world a small, kinder place. The skills I have to offer to the simbi community are: 1) French lessons or translation--I've been speaking French for over a decade, have an MA in French, and work in the language on a daily basis. 2) Editing, English tutoring, or writing coaching--I have taught English in France and Chile, worked in a college writing center, have a BA in English, and generally love written expression! 3)Photo editing--I have worked as a photographer, in a photo store and a portrait studio, and am great at retouching photos. I particularly love restoring antique photos that may have been damaged or torn. 4) Basic graphic design--I have a good eye and enjoy creative projects. I don't have professional expertise, but I've done a lot of small projects for the nonprof I work for, and would love to branch out.
Interested in: learning/improving French and Arabic. Piano lessons, voice lessons. Help with my backyard- I have a big, untamed one, and I would love some advice/help in how to start a vegetable garden, how to landscape, etc.
