I was born in Streatham (England) and used English as my mother tongue during my childhood and early teens spent in England, as well as in the family.
My secondary schooling in France was completed by a Baccalauréat (Philosophy) degree and my University training by the award of a Licence ès Sciences Economiques in Paris.
My professional career began by working three years for an import-export firm in Paris and I then held an executive position at Crédit Foncier de France (at that time the national mortgage loan bank here) for thirty years, successively in the financial, legal and insurance departments. They also employed me as an in-house translator for several years, being known as an English native-speaker, as well as being perfectly fluent in French.
Since having set up business as a free-lance translator in 1998, I have carried out translation, proofreading and interpreting work for leading banks and insurance companies, sollicitors (contracts and Court sentences), local Regional authorities, (Nord-Pas-de-Calais), marketing agencies and the like.
