Translation

My specialism is creative translation, but I also have experience in translating medical reports and legal documents.

Interests

Italian Literature: I studied a range of genres at degree level, critically analyzing books such as Il Contesto, Il Gattopardo, Il Conformista and Fontamara. I have since developed a passion for modern, fragmented narratives dealing with issues of identity, gender and sexuality.

Sport: I run, both independently and with a club. Sport helps focus my mind, and encourages me to strike a balance between work and leisure. Achieving sporting goals inspires me to be ambitious at work and in other areas.

Performing Arts: I am a member of a television and film agency, and have appeared on various occasions as an extra in a Welsh soap opera. I enjoy performing for its confidence-boosting qualities and its promoting of self-awareness. It requires me to take initiative whilst collaborating with experts in the field.
