I am a literary translator, working from Spanish into English, and specialising in the following areas:

  • fiction
  • non-fiction
  • theatre.

I am a Member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (MITI), an Assessor for applications for Membership of the Institute in Spanish to English, and a Member of the Society of Authors.

From 2015 to 2017, I was Assistant Professor, Spanish to English translation in the Department of Languages and Intercultural Studies at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh.

Before becoming a translator, I worked as a project manager and editor of open learning materials, as a bilingual lexicographer, and as an English language teacher.

Originally from Scotland, I now live in Cádiz (Spain) with my two teenage children and a couple of greedy labradors.
