About me

I am a native English speaker from London and have lived in Amsterdam since 2012. I have a BA(Hons) degree in Modern History and Economics from Manchester University, and a CELTA (Certificate in teaching English to speakers of other languages) from International House London.

I have been proofreading, editing and translating for the last six years, and am a member of SENSE: the Society of English-Native-Speaking Editors in the Netherlands.

In my free time, I enjoy jogging, music, and reading about history and current affairs. I also have a keen interest in societal and environmental issues.
