A British (English) national, I have lived and worked in Italy for more than 15 years.

I hold a Bachelors Joint Honours degree in Italian and Spanish from the University of Hull and a Masters degree in Translation from the University of Bristol. I am a full member of the British Chartered Institute of Linguists and the British Chartered Institute of Public Relations. I have completed short Level 4 diploma courses in Copywriting, Journalism and Social Media Marketing and am currently studying for a University Certificate in Psychology (UK).

I have significant experience, spanning more than fifteen years, in the motorsports arena, having worked in-house for Ducati Motor Holding, Ducati Corse and Alpinestars in the communication/PR field. I continue to collaborate with various international motorcycle racing teams at race events on a freelance basis, and remain available for communications work.

I carry out translation, editing, proofreading and writing work on a freelance basis across the fields of: automotive, motorsport, marketing & PR, travel & tourism, fashion, technical, luxury goods, general business, journalism, ceramics, food & drink, and education. Having worked for a combination of international companies and private clients, I have built up a wealth of experience across a variety of fields.

I am flexible, willing to work outside of standard office hours, offer competitive rates and guarantee high quality as well as a fast turnaround when necessary.
