Sobre la meva biblioteca

My collection of learning materials for foreign languages, as well as for English, is the most significant.

Some of my other interests are: New York City history, German history, cooking, home design and decorating, personal development, personal finance and investing, and world religions.

Sobre mi

I grew up in a multilingual home, which carried over into learning more languages in school, and I've been a polyglot ever since.

I started my work career as a linguist and cryptanalyst in the US Intelligence Community, later transitioning into being an academic research and special collections librarian, archivist, and curator, where world languages were essential. I've also worked with museum collections conservation and preservation, photograph collections, personal papers, and corporate records.

I also taught and tutored English privately whenever I had the opportunity.

At various points in my life I've lived in Japan, Canada, Germany, Denmark, Poland, and South Africa.

Now retired from an onsite career, I do various online work, mainly as a Virtual Assistant. I also continue to study languages and add to my polyglot skills, and also to help people learn and improve their English. In 2018-2019 I lived and worked in Poland as an English language coach, tutor, and mentor.

I live in the thoroughly delightful neighborhood of Carnegie Hill, located along Central Park in the northwest corner of the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Over the next few years I plan to spend most of my time abroad, while still maintaining a home in NYC. Right now I am researching places to live in Italy, Bulgaria, and Türkiye.
