About me
I first asked my granddad for a typewriter as a birthday gift when I was nine. Writing is like an addiction to me, a driving force for all activities in my life. I have worked as a proofreader, translator, editor, PR agent, professor, film reviewer, marketing and press manager, using my writing skills in many languages. I can fill this resume with attention-grabbing and flowery words like "hardworking", "creative", "self-driven", "reliable", "elegant", "smiley", and so on, but we all know that these vacuous phrases mean nothing. It is determination and resilience that make a difference. And once I embrace a project or a cause, I can persuade even Putin to jump on board.
