Born in Dublin, Ireland. Was part of the Irish diaspora of the lated 1970s (before the Celtic Tiger started to roar) and settled in Paris. I continued my education in all senses of the world there and came in contact with interesting people from all over the world.
Trilingual and very important, tricultural (English, French, Spanish). Lived/worked in Paris, France, traveled extensively in Europe, arrived in the Caribbean in 1985 and lived/worked in the DR for 19 years first time round. Back to Paris for 3 years and now I live/work in the Dominican Republic. Plus some travel in the U.S. and Australia.
Consider myself a "natural translator/interpreter". I know it's a gift one is born with, or it is one of the multiple intelligences, but I feel I have a special talent for this type of work. (Not wanting to blow my own trumpet!).
In my various professional activities over the years, I have always had to use my translation and interpreting skills.
Am an avid reader, possess more than average general knowledge and culture, which help as a translator/interpreter.
I love the challenge of translation/interpreting and feel extremely satisfied and accomplished when I complete a piece of work.
Have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Translation (English, French, Spanish) and a Masters in the Teaching of English as a Foreign/Second Language (M.A. TESL/EFL).
Am a certified Court Interpreter for the Santo Domingo district, Dominican Republic.
