Extrait du site-web complètement traduit:
"Musicien pigiste depuis 1990, j’ai eu le plaisir de me produire dans tout genre d’événements corporatifs principalement dans la ville de Québec, mais aussi dans Charlevoix, la Beauce, le Bas-Saint-Laurent, Montréal et Mont-Tremblant. J’ai aussi participé à quelques tournées au Québec et en Europe au sein de divers groupes musicaux. Je suis également le violoniste pour les mariages (elopement wedding) au Château Frontenac.
Mon répertoire fait revivre les plus belles mélodies de la musique classique, française, italienne, américaine, irlandaise, québécoise et explore la musique manouche, tzigane, klezmer ainsi que le jazz."

Excerpt from fully translated website:
"A freelance musician since 1990, I’ve had the pleasure of performing for all types of corporate events mainly in Quebec City, but also in Charlevoix, la Beauce, le Bas-Saint-Laurent, Montreal and Mont-Tremblant. I’ve participated in a few tours around the province of Quebec and in Europe, alongside diverse musical groups. I am also the violinist for elopement weddings at the Fairmont Château Frontenac.
My repertoire brings to life the most beautiful melodies of French, Italian, American, Irish and Quebec classical music. It equally explores the genres of Manouche, Tzigane, Klezmer and Jazz."

I am a native English speaker, who is fluent in French.
I have been working in bilingual and translation roles for the past 10 years.
I am also a Canadian certified French teacher! I have been teaching French for the past 4 and half years.
Bachelor of Arts, Major in French, Minor in Psychology
Bachelor of Education, specialization in French language
A little history:
My B.A. in French focussed on Literature and Translation, including a one-year intensive translation course.
Through completion of upper level university courses in English, French, and Translation, as well as my work experience in both languages, I have developed a very clear, accurate and stylized level of translation.
More about me:
I have lived and worked in France, Quebec and the bilingual city of Ottawa. In each of these locations I worked in completely bilingual settings (French and English), performing translation, writing and language teaching services.
I genuinely enjoy translating and writing in both languages. It’s a rewarding challenge finding the right words and expressions to communicate an exact meaning into another language. I have done translations in the fields of education, humanities, history, fine arts, literature, and business correspondence (private and government), to name a few.
As a translator or proof-reader I offer:
•Meticulous work, with utmost attention to detail
•Clear and accurate work that conveys the exact meaning and feel of the original piece
•Clear and reliable communication
•Reasonable and flexible rates
I am looking forward to hearing from you about any project that you may need help with.
