I offer my clients a solid educational and experiential background in all my areas of specialization. I am a native speaker of American (US) English who lives in England, and I am able to translate your document into either British or American English. The particulars of my experience are outlined below and detailed in my CV which is available on request. Please feel free to contact me for jobs, collaborations and quotations.

  • M.S. in Marine Environmental Sciences State University of New York at Stony Brook, NY (USA)
  • B.S. in Geological and Geophysical Sciences University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA).
My professional experience in the environmental field encompasses both the consulting and regulatory perspectives. I have worked extensively with hydrocarbon contamination in groundwater supplies at gas stations and bulk oil facilities and with soil and groundwater contamination from copper and coal mining. This experience puts me in good stead as an environmental translator specializing in geologic translations, oil and gas translations, mining translations, and translations dealing with environmental sciences and environmental technology.
