CV

In case you are interested about my past experience, here you go. I sometimes work as a freelancer for short-term engagements such as teaching courses, giving private talks or working on an interesting project for a few days. If you have a proposal let me know. Note to recruiters: I am looking for freelancer gigs right now.

Public Talks

Videos of talks at events and conferences, from less to more embarrassing.

You can also see my full speaker profile. I have spoken at a few more events over the years, but the talks have not always been recorded or published.
