I am a linguist and software engineer by education and work experience. More recently I've worked a lot with non-profit orgs with services to high risk children and their education.
I've lived almost 12yrs in francophone countries (starting with France where I studied) and West Africa (where I wrote linguistic papers in French and did a lot of interpretation English-French in linguistics field), and worked many years in Morocco (both daytimes as an executive secretary translating business letters from French-English) as well as evenings doing a lot of translation English-Arabic.
I did a lot of religious translation work both English-Arabic and English-French.
I'm also an athlete and have written about sports and athletics in various countries where I've played.
