I teach English in crisis-ridden Spain. Unfortunately, that means helping Spaniards leave a sinking ship. When I manage to keep my head above water, I read, write, cook, and laugh.
An idea worth spreading
"With enough courage, you can do without a reputation". (Gone with the Wind)
I'm passionate about
Learning, researching, music, movies, reading and writing, sharing ideas.
Talk to me about
About movies, music, books, art in general; about how to make the world a more fair place and knowledge accessible to more people.
My TED story
I'm really not sure how it all started. I guess a colleague must have told me about it and then I sort of got drawn into it. Now I watch talks almost daily and find myself recommending the site to colleagues and students (I believe it's a great space to practice and improve one's English while learning about a variety of other topics at the same time), as well as to friends, etc. on a regular basis. Most people thank me soon afterwards :) While not all talks are of interest to everyone, I believe almost everyone will find at least one that appeals to them, and that is wonderful.
