Short Intro

I am Fakhri Azzouz a language professional and a web developer from Tunisia.
To know me better I’ll tell how I spend the bulk of my time:

  • Coding and diving into WordPress
  • Translating
  • Reading non-fiction books
  • Swimming

I am also planning to write more often on this blog and make writing a more consistent habit.

Blogging will document my progress as a professional linguist and also as a web developer.

I may also sporadically write about self-improvement.
