I translate from both French and Spanish into English. I am able to translate from a wide variety of source texts – if I'm not familiar with the subject matter, I'll research it! However, I do specialise in four subject areas: marketing/creative, academic, sports and technology.
I specialise in translations of texts with a more creative aspect to them, bringing to bear my previous experience as a journalist, literary critic, and communications officer for a non-for-profit organisation. Types of texts I translate include:
· Newspaper and magazine articles
· Press releases
· Web content
· Marketing materials
· Fictional works
I've loved sport ever since I was first dunked into a swimming pool at the age of five. Since then, I've tried out virtually every sport under the sun. My favourites, as both practitioner and spectator, are snowboarding (which I'm terrible at) and MMA (mixed martial arts). I have a first-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and am currently working towards a black belt in kickboxing. I have also studied Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai.
When I moved to England, I was lured into supporting Brentford FC, a West London club that plays in the Championship League, and which has succeeded in thoroughly winning my heart.

I specialise in the translation of academic texts and research reports in the fields of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. I also edit and proofread papers by non-native speakers of English. Types of texts I translate include:
I have completed a PhD in Language, Literature, and Cultural Studies (Trinity College Dublin), an MA in Politics (University College Dublin), and a BA in History and English Literature (Trinity College Dublin).
I have presented my research at a number of international conferences, and have published an academic paper on the novels of Eduardo Mendoza and Antonio Muñoz Molina in Modern Languages Open. I also collaborate with the 452°F journal of literary criticism as a translator and proofreader.
