    I hold a B.Sc. Honours Degree in Chemistry. Being a fluent English speaker, I am proficient in preparation and execution of presentations and I also have experience with academic and technical writing. In 2011-2014 I was an active member of the national committee of IAESTE Malta (The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience) on positions of Outgoing Officer and Exchange Officer. These roles enabled me to gain experience with organisation of traineeship programmes, processing of the required documentation and communication with national IAESTE committees both in Europe and world-wide. Most of these tasks were carried out through online media/e-mail or phone communication, providing me with extensive experience as a virtual/personal assistant. Additionally, I was involved in the organization of events and activities for local students and foreign trainees, as well as in the preparation of promotional materials using Photoshop and Illustrator (posters, flyers, banners for use in online media) and in the administration of website (knowledge of HTML, CSS, jQuery). Furthermore, I worked as a volunteer chemistry tutor for students sitting for their O’Level examinations. I have passion for languages and a thirst for learning and taking on challenges. Apart from being a fluent English, Slovak and Czech speaker, I have studied German for four years and Korean for two years. I consider myself to be a responsible and trustworthy person with a positive mindset. As a result of my experience I am confident I would be a great addition and an asset to your company.  less

    Content crafted to convince. Looking for a writer who can turn technical jargon into compelling content? Since 2008, I have been providing clients from tech and IT fields with content crafted to convince. My work has found its way to white papers, blogs, web sales pages, case studies, ebooks, brochures, PowerPoint presentations, flyers, sales letters, articles, and user manuals. Your product or service may be the best out there. But unless you're able to educate potential customers about it and ultimately convince them that it's something they really need, you'll never be able to hit your sales targets. That's why you need me on your team. I specialize in topics related to cloud computing, information security, and Big Data but can adapt to any IT subject. Some of the areas I've covered include: Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), Hadoop, hyperconvergence, ETL, SaaS, IaaS, BYOD, server and desktop virtualization, encryption, managed file transfer, business continuity and disaster recovery, managed services, e-discovery, business intelligence, and storage and backup. I have also blogged about laws and regulations affecting IT systems, like: SOX, GLBA, HIPAA and HITECH, PCI DSS, EU Data Protection Directive, Solvency II, transborder data flow regulations, and US state and territorial data breach notification laws.  less

    I am a Digital Photography enthusiast / Writer / Photographer based out of Kolkata. If it is anything to do with a camera and a lens I am all ears.

Usually, when I am not working I love travelling to the mountains. I live within an arms length from Sikkim (Lonely Planet's - "best region to visit in 2014"). I love the road almost as much as I love photography and juggle my passion for both between my family commitments. But above and beyond everything I love spending time with my four-year old daughter.
