I first studied translation and interpreting in Germany and England, followed by an internship in a translation company. This quickly progressed into full time employment as a translator, language assistant, interpreter and administrator. Having travelled extensively, visiting more than 30 countries, together with spending extended periods in Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Argentina and Uruguay, I have now been translating in a professional capacity for more than 10 years.

I hold a MA Bilingual Translation (Distinction) from the University of Westminster (London), where I am also contracted to teach translation (Institutional Translation English-German) as a Visiting Lecturer and to supervise MA Projects.

My special fields of interest are subtitling (documentaries, movies, series, children's content) and literary translations, and I am a member of the German Association of German Literary Translators (VdÜ) and the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL) in the UK.
