About me

I first fell in love with the Japanese language in early high school. The three writing systems were both fascinating and scary, immediately igniting a drive to take on the challenge of conquering the infinite number of kanji used in the language (something that continues to this day).
This love of Japanese has seen me make a career out of it. Being a translator is the one profession where I am constantly engaged, constantly learning and constantly using my creativity. I get a real buzz when I hand over a translation to a client, knowing I’ve done the absolute best I can do.
When I am not at my desk, I can be found in the kitchen trying out a new recipe, off on a run, doing yoga, exploring the mountains, travelling or simply curled up with my Kindle.
