About Me

My passion for languages dates back to a very early age as I was fortunate to have parents from different linguistic backgrounds. I was raised to speak German with fellow Austrians, but at home, my Australian mother predominately conversed with my sisters and me in English. In addition, we were raised to believe that reading is more educational than watching TV, and to this day I hardly leave the house without a book in my bag.

I have just completed my studies at the University of Western Australia Master of Translation Studies (Specialisation: German) with Distinction.
