About me

Hello! My name is Serge K. Keller, FCD.

I'm a scientific and technical journalist, a freelance writer and translator, a graphic designer and desktop publisher, and a webmaster. In other words: I'm a wordsmith and a pixel craftsman, a printer of electrons and a web scientist.

I'm also a former biologist, and used to be a zookeeper: to this day, I've kept a strong interest in natural sciences, and I remain a staunch, bearded Darwin groupie.

In my free time, I direct some amateur theatre plays, or play on stage myself. Photography, bicycle touring, travels, cinema and reading (I'm a tsundoku black belt) also count amongst my hobbies and past-times.
