I was born in the UK and have always been fascinated by language; both my own native English and other languages. At the age of 6 I began teaching myself French and Spanish using an old set of guidebooks!

My academic career took a different direction and I studied archaeology at degree and postgraduate level. Archaeology not actually being a discipline with many job opportunities, I then worked in the IT industry for several years before moving to France where I quickly became fluent in the language and had a very successful career in the property sector.

In 2008 I moved to Sweden, returning to an IT-based role before becoming a professional freelance translator in 2009.
