I’m a London based translator and scribbler. I specialise in literary translation and translate from French to English. My translation of the Goncourt winning (first novel category) What Became of the White Savage by François Garde was published by Dedalus in May 2015.

Before becoming a translator, I was a teacher for many years. I’ve studied languages, sociology and translation at the universities of Sussex, California (Santa Cruz) and London (Birkbeck) and at City University (London).

I’m fluent in French and English, but I’ve studied quite a few other languages too, including German, Russian and Urdu.
