I am British, from Shorne, in Kent. I hold the Teaching Diploma (Royal Academy of Dance, London), Higher Certificate of English (Spanish Official Language School) and a Licentiate Degree in English Philology (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia, UNED, Madrid).
I have lived and worked in Catalonia, Spain, since 1977, and I can communicate in both Catalan and Spanish at a native level. The fact I have lived in Spain for over half my life means I feel completely at home in my adopted country.
I have been a teacher for 28 years and a professional translator since 2008, although I have been translating regularly for friends and acquaintances, for three decades.
I am a person who enjoys helping people reach their professional goals and I feel a great sense of satisfaction when I am able to help people express what they want to say in English.
