About me

I’m a Lisbon-based writer and Portuguese to English translator. I’m passionate about the English language and helping others use it to communicate more effectively. I write in English, revise and proofread texts written by others and translate Portuguese copy into English. If you’ve got something to say, I can help you say it the best way.

As the child of an English mother and Portuguese father, I’ve been bridging the gap between these two cultures all my life. I’ve worked as a translator for a variety of Portuguese blue chip companies and write short stories for Portuguese school children learning English.

I’m a 1st class honours Graduate of Portuguese and Brazilian Studies from King’s College, London and have a passion for all things Portugal. Although I am fully bilingual in English and Portuguese, I'm happiest and most at ease when expressing myself in English. I have worked as a translator for over 15 years and I have also worked as a reporter for two renowned financial news agencies.

I’m currently responsible for all the Portuguese to English translations of Macau-based news service Macauhub and quarterly publication Macao Magazine.

I live near Lisbon, Portugal with my Portuguese-American husband and our two young sons.
