About me:
After having studied Marketing & Design for a year, I went traveling. Because of my broad intellectual interests I decided to study Philosophy at Leiden University. I became involved with an Art Gallery in Rotterdam and a group of philosophers with whom I organized lectures and the “Rotterdam Philosophy Café”. In 2000 we did the short movie on the cynic philosopher of Sinope, “Diogenes in de Koopgoot”, for which I did research, script, direction and supervised the editing process.

During several years I was involved with the organization of Poetry International in Rotterdam. This gave me the opportunity to speak with poets, publishers and translators, and it inspired me to start translating myself. I worked in the Netherlands’ only poetry bookstore in Amsterdam: Perdu.

I moved on to The American Book Center (8 years), a surroundings where nearly all communication was in English, switching between Dutch and English required as second nature, and exposure to many aspects of American Culture inescapable. As a regular contributor to the quarterly newsletter I wrote about publications, writers and book-related subjects. Needless to say : I read a lot!

Learning Spanish I traveled through Spain. In La Rioja I made wine the traditional way and explored the region’s rich archaeological and historical heritage. I fell in love with Asturias though: its history, archaeology, geography, traditional and current music, ancestral traditions, nature, mythology, festivals, traditional architecture, tourist attractions, literature and current affairs. Meanwhile I have learnt the Asturian language from which I have translated several articles and (prose) essays.

Besides Translation Services, I offer Graphic & Web Design. Languages Pairs:
