Bio

Native English freelance copywriter, proofreader, editor and translator. I did this on the side at my prior employer (Evli Bank) for 20 years as the only native English speaker there. The Communications and Marketing teams often came to me for help, even when I was managing investment funds in my main role. 


In cooperation with Navitep, Translatum, Apropos Lingua (Memsource, MemoQ, CafeTran), I have worked on over 130 projects. This includes writing, editing and/or translating for corporate clients such as UPM, Wärtsilä, Ponsse, Wurth, Säästöpankki (Savings Bank), Doctors Without Borders, MTV Uutiset, Al Sana Group and many more.

Aside from my financial experience and Economics degree, I have the benefit of a Copywriting diploma and SEO Copywriting diploma, as well as the ability to fluently read (and translate from) Finnish and Swedish - all of my domestic investor meetings were in Finnish or Swedish.
 

I am very internationally minded, having enjoyed the challenges of investing in markets all around the world (Europe, Asia, LatAm, Africa, Middle East) and as a prolific traveller (more than 55 countries).
