I went to live and work in Japan in 1984. I worked as a chef
and briefly as an English teacher for a number of Japanese companies including
Asics, Nippon Lever and Ricoh. I also studied Kendo- taking the written examinations
to this in Japanese. 

I returned to the UK in 1987 to take up a position of
translator and interpreter at Ricoh’s European manufacturing base. There, I was
solely responsible for the translation of all manufacturing, technical and
quality assurance documentation and manuals.

In 1996 I began a career as a police officer, I retained my interest
in Japanese language though did not use it professionally. However, in 2014 I
had the opportunity to visit Japan as part of a police research project.  This reignited my passion for professional use
of the language and initiated an interest in Japanese criminal law. Following
retirement from the police in September 2017 I began a Masters in Applied
Translation at the University of Leeds. My first degree (BA Hons Japanese
Studies), was gained from the University of Sheffield.
