Who am I?

A trained and experienced translator and interpreter and former academic, I run a boutique translation, interpreting and academic writing business from my base in Edinburgh, Scotland. I also provide some teaching for the PhD Program in Applied Linguistics at the Hellenic University of Athens. In 2011-12, I shall teach conference interpreting at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh. 

I also have a passion for horses and brought a young PRE horse over from Spain 3 years ago which I am training to compete in dressage. We are currently about to affiliate and start to compete more intensively, at present at Novice and Elementary levels.
