I've been helping businesses, academics and creative professionals communicate to an English-speaking audience since I chose translation as a career in 2003.
As a Londoner, I grew up surrounded by people speaking different languages, and made the most of the capital’s cultural scene; after a degree in French and Italian, I lived in Italy's fashion and design capital Milan for thirteen years, before moving to beautiful Puglia, the heel of Italy.
As a result, I possess a deep understanding of the specific references and subtleties of Italian culture, society and language, in a variety of contexts.
My professional background in business marketing & communications and a lifelong fascination with fashion, the arts and travel, means I relish the intellectual challenge of translating complex creative and cultural texts.
I hold a First Class Hons B.A. in Modern Languages from the University of Bristol
I'm a Member of the UK’s Chartered Institute of Linguists, and of Mediterranean Editors and Translators.
