Portrait of Serge K. Keller
Serge K. Keller (2017)

Hello! My name is Serge K. Keller, FCD, and 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 — but I'm also a printer of electrons and a web scientist.

I'm a former biologist as well, and used to be a zoo keeper; 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 will occasionally play on stage myself. Photography, bicycle touring, cinema and lots of reading (does the term tsundoku ring a bell?) also count amongst my favourite past-times.

I currently live in Fribourg (the Swiss one), a very nice bilingual city (French/German), but grew up in the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland. And I love to travel whenever I get the opportunity!
