Originally from the UK, I have lived and worked in the Netherlands for two decades. I have been a freelance editor and translator since 2007. Like many freelancers, I worked in various fields beforehand, including academia and the NGO sector.
I have a first class Bachelor’s degree in History from Cambridge University and an MPhil and a DPhil in International Relations from Oxford University. I have a Postgraduate Certificate in the Principles and Practice of Translation from City University, London.
I am currently studying Fine Art at Wackers Academie in Amsterdam.
