I am an Australian citizen, with a vast amount of experience living and working in Thailand and a level of cultural comprehension comparable to few.

My expert credentials include a Master of Studies degree from the Australian National University (#1 university in Australia/currently ranked #19 in world by QS), and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Thai Language and Culture from Mae Fah Luang University (#1 university for teaching Thai language to foreigners, based in Thailand).

I have also completed a Certificate III in Micro Business Operations and certificate I in Photography, in addition to being a licensed diver and cycling enthusiast!

I began translation/interpretation in the year 2002 while volunteering in a displaced children's refuge on the Thai-Burma border; this was after I began learning Thai in the year 2000 as a high school student at Chiang Mai International School.

With this background and expertise in mind I am able to translate an average of 15,000 words per week.

I specialise in the translation of issues relating to applied anthropology, international development, NGO's, refugees and migration, human trafficking, indigenous peoples' rights, the effects of mining and resource extraction on local communities, social impact assessments, land tenure and environmental management.

I also have a broad range of experience in many other fields of translation and with consideration of my training, I am able to adapt my skills to the translation of most types of material.

With regards to this, the bulk of my work consists of technical translations such as clinical trial and banking documentation.

I have the full version license for the Wordfast CAT tool (compatible with most other CAT tools).

Thank you for the consideration in working with your company.
