Ongoing training

We do not live to believe, but to learn.  (Dalai Lama)

As languages, technology and the world around us are constantly evolving, we should too. And luckily we can. For professional and personal purposes. To craft the best slogans, headlines and copy for my clients I regularly develop my writing and translation skills as well as my marketing knowledge.
