Originally from Dublin, I’ve spent half a lifetime abroad, first studying in France and then moving to Germany. I’ve lived in Cologne ever since, having set up as a freelance translator and copywriter back in 2003 after a spell in the market research sector.
I have a BA in International Marketing & Languages from Dublin City University, with first-class honours in both French and German. As well as this, I obtained a Certificate in Accounting from the Open University as an additional qualification for my financial translation work.
When not at my desk, you’ll generally find me on the tennis court, walking by the Rhine, cooking with my wife or curled up with a good book and a glass of Italian red.
