In case you happened to be looking for it, this is my CV in unattractive but easy to email form (my timeline is a less authoritative but more fun accompaniment). If you have any comments on the CV, I’d be glad to hear them, and I’ll be thinking more about exactly what I want to do, but initial options are:

  • Web-development freelance/contract work that will give me occasional time to pursue other things away from the awful glowing screen.
  • Something more futures-oriented. A harder beast to pin down, this species of job. I’d like to use the skills I learned and interests I developed while studying for my future studies masters, but how to do that is a bit of a mystery to me.
  • A job testing the readability of interesting books in the light of the Mediterranean sun.

Any thoughts, comments, pointers or laughter in the face of impending recession are welcome.
