Originally from Ireland, I am now based in Spain. I love books and culture, and each new language I learn opens up another world.
I began my studies with a B.A. in English Literature and History, which I followed with an M.A. in Literature and Publishing. After completing an M.A. in Film Studies I then worked in film production in San Francisco, USA for two years before eventually moving to Spain to teach English. I lived in Madrid for three years before then returning to the audiovisual industry in Barcelona to work in executive production, concentrating on international coproductions and translating scripts, treatments and project bibles from Spanish and Catalan into English. I have worked professionally in Spanish and Catalan for the past 15 years and have an advanced level in both languages. I now dedicate myself exclusively to translation and proofreading, applying my skills to academic, commercial and cultural texts. I have worked on projects in film production, yoga, culture, tourism, history and semi-specialised science. I am a member of MET, the association of Mediterranean Editors and Translators.
