A bilingual upbringing and a lifetime of reading and travels could only lead to working in the language field. I am a translator, writer, copywriter and subtitler.

My specialisation is Travel and Lifestyle (which includes food, wine, bookings, transportation, hotels, tourism activities, history, arts...). As my love for cooking and travelling is only matched with the one I have for gardening, I also work in horticulture and floriculture.

The other side of my business revolves around the entertainment industry (subtitling, translation for voice-over, scripts and theatre) and last but not least, literature.

Attention to detail and strict respect of deadlines, allied to nerdy computer skills and joy to take down on a challenge, makes me your best possible language partner.
