Portfolios

A simple listing of past achievements doesn't sufficiently capture the range of skills I have acquired. Over the years, I have developed a fairly unique combination of skills in several areas not usually expected in one person. I am equally at home doing academic research in the humanities, teaching foreign languages or training teachers of foreign languages, managing projects, supporting users of computers on a variety of platforms, and developing online communities. I am also bilingual and have written columns in both English and Czech, and done translation.
