“Life is a quest for lucidity” (Aristotle)
The quote from Aristotle and this majestic nature (photo), are both perfect illustrations of what should make humans think: “about the dreams that stuff is made of…” and it is through this genuine vision that I entertain an incentive strong enough to keep me doing what I’m doing, and that is to say: “being” and “keeping dreams real.”
On a personal level, my goal is to become fully able in producing attractive digital content. That is why I’m studying Literature. However, in the real world, I seek work in the aged care sector. I enjoy the company of elderly people. I know I will be a positive addition in their lives. Hence, I seek a permanent part-time position for weekend work. I really hope to find work before the end of this year. I am available for a long-term contract and am flexible with my days. In a few words, I’m a clear thinker and I care about people. From previous experiences, I was said by others to be a great communicator and having the spirit of a natural-born leader. However, I will use this talent only to do good. If you also think this way, then we are probably made to understand each other. I have worked hard for several years, not just professionally but on a personal level, towards becoming a better version of myself. I feel now is the good time to get my back in the grindstone. Hence, if you are interested in meeting me I’m ready to pop in :)
Let’s combine our skills! Contact me to let me know if you have an available position, I’m sure we can find a way to work together. Oh, perhaps, you wish to ask me a question?
Well… that is a pretty cool résumé!
Education, still ongoing… embracing the concept of lifelong learning
Liberal Studies Certificate | Level-100 (Uni) @ ACU Strathfield University (achieved)
2014 – 2015 | Sociology, Ethics, Literature, Drama and Philosophy. This academic course (Uni entry-level cert.) naturally offered me to acquire real skills, but furthermore it gave me a stunning opportunity to improve my qualities. Indeed, this course allowed me to re-adjust my character and therefore to improve in overall my human nature. This has had the effect of literally changing the curse of my existence for the better. And also, to acknowledge the very passion and genuine devotion that my professors have shown in distilling new concepts and tools in my life, I must say I’m very grateful to all of them.
Higher Mathematics | TPC (HSC Extention Level) @ TAFE Ultimo College (achieved)
2014 – 2015 | I was always loosed in maths in my early days and I was actually never able to “keep the thread” in this (very) particular subject. Thus, it was time for me to take up the challenge and to learn all 10 years of early grades maths in three semesters only. It’s now done, and it allowed me to prove to myself that there is no such thing as “the impossible”! I acquired a solid foundational level in mathematics: “the theoretical minimum”, as I like to call it. Not only this baggage makes me more polyvalent, but it also has been part of my “spiritual framework”… while mathematics taught me something really important that I had probably missed in my early days: patience and humility.

Experience and initiatives… life as a conscious and social experiment
Wwoofing | Helping at the farm v.s. English lessons and shelter @ Fred’s Farm
August 2013 – February 2014 (7 months) Mareeba, Queensland
I wouldn’t call it formally wwoofing (even though wwoofing has nothing formal!) but I have been living in Mareeba (Queensland) where I was helping an Australian family in everyday activities, against which I was offered a shelter in their farm called “Jeff’s Farm”. At this occasion I’ve been casually fruit picking, helping at home or outside, but most of all I was asked to take care after their (many!) children, so my role consisted mainly of being a good company. This was my very first opportunity to immerse myself with natives and improve my English. Anyway, and even if I loved the lifestyle, after six months I felt the need to go back to the city and somehow “reconnect” with the real world… from there it would take another couple of weeks before I finally reach Sydney.
Working at “Le Gite de la Deveze” in the mountains in Lozère (Parc naturel des Cévennes) as a wwoofer, for eight months, participating in promoting a different lifestyle to customers. I was entrusted by the owner family: Lionel & Danielle, to help building soil restrainers on a sloping land, reconfiguring dry-stone walls, nurturing the organic garden to grow beautiful vegetables, welcoming and taking care after customers, baby sitting the children and helping serving dinner. By the way, you must try the vegetarian dish: “La salade Cévénole”… wow!
Copywriter Freelance @ home && Direct sales Marketer @ Direct Medica
January 2009 – June 2009 (6 months) Paris
Here are two selected samples of copywriting missions I have accomplished:
Even though they are written in French language, it doesn’t matter as I am at ease with both languages equally. I let you make yourself the own judge of my skills by looking at my page 19th-century project. Writing (like drawing) is a precious and sensitive activity and it is a passion that I nurture. In parallel to this writing ambition and as a downside of having to survive in capitalist model society, I was also a marketer promoting pharmaceutical specialities to a wide range of general practitioners and specialists at Direct Médica (suburban Paris).
Experience at this point, cannot be labelled easily. Having worked five years in many positions, (seemingly) of opposite directions, I will just keep it simple: I went from being an intern html/css coder creating Intranet pages and editing prints of city maps, to assisting several companies in their logistics (as a contractor, including one mission in Atlanta, U.S.A.) But also intermingled in-between that, I went from doing sales in multimedia retail stores to being an independent stockbroker in finance (building a portfolio from scratch to 38 key clients within eight months). All missions were achieved successfully and work was provided to a quality extent towards high standards, but at some point and for some reason having to do with ethics (but which I won’t inappropriately spread here), there has been kind of a little breakdown.
Languages, totally fluent in English and French, and (trying) to learn Spanish
English: native or bilingual proficiency
Français: native or bilingual proficiency
Español: “still in construction…”
Last things to know about me…
- I can adapt to your schedule as long as I keep doing at least one university subject per semester (that’s part of the plan).
- I live in Sydney and I surely do use the public transports, just being eco-logic!
- I’m looking at earning enough to live but not more, I’m not an addict to money.
- I fit well everywhere as long as I’m around genuine people.
