I am currently (November 2014) an assistant multimedia librarian in the Scientific Information Service at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland.
Although I am particularly interested in science and the ways in which people communicate it, I spend most of my spare time either as a volunteer street fundraiser (of the fancy dress and bucket variety) for various charities, or playing floorball (in goal).
I very much enjoy writing about all these subjects for my blog. Occasionally, others seem to approve, too. Here is a list of other places you can read my work:

Fundraisers should learn to lean on science (Volunteer charity fundraising, science, psychology)
