Established since 2004, domicile in Vienna.

CAD/NRPSI listed, EU & UN accredited interpreter.

After 3 years' in the UK insurance industry, my language skills were acquired during fifteen years in international logistics. I have worked mainly in the following countries:

Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia (Kosovo)
Chechnya, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan
Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea, Chad, Haiti
Angola, Mozambique
Panama, Dominican Republic

This 'hands on' linguistic knowledge was then consolidated by studies in interpreting and translation in London.
I am currently a freelance interpreter/translator with professional domicile in Vienna, while continuing to work intermittently as an international logistics consultant, mainly in relation to large-scale disasters.
