CV/Resume English (PDF)
I am an Australian who grew up bilingually due to having an Austrian mother.

Frequent visits to Europe and Austria as a child encouraged familiarity with German/Austrian culture. As I lived and worked in Vienna for 22 years, I have hands-on experience with local customs and traditions and also the societal and cultural aspects of Central Europe.

I have been working as a translator/proofreader/editor/journalist for the past 16 years. I was educated in Australia before going to Austria, where I attended the University of Vienna and graduated with a Masters degree in music (violin).

I also write prose and poetry and have had some poetry published in journals in the UK, USA and Australia and NZ.

My passions and interests include language, literature, writing, sport, people and animals.
