I have been translating and proofreading, from Japanese and French into my native English, full-time since January 2018. I work predominantly with marketing, tourism, e-commerce, and business communication materials, as well as in the fields of ecology, sustainability, and agronomy, in which I have seven years’ voluntary proofreading and copy-editing experience.

Pursuing my dream of becoming a literary translator, I have completed an MA in Japanese Studies (2:1 with Distinction for spoken Japanese) and an MSc (with Distinction) in Literary Translation as Creative Practice. During my master's, I translated excerpts of works by Tanizaki Jun'ichiro, Ohba Minako, Ariyoshi Sawako, and Kawabata Yasunari.

I am particularly interested in translating women writers, fantasy and science fiction, creative non-fiction, and manga (comedy, slice-of-life, fantasy, drama, and romance).

I was lucky enough to win a place on the joint Kurodahan Press and Cardiff University workshop for emerging translators this April, and am currently editing a Japanese to English translation of a supernatural/mystery short story for publication later this year.
