I have been working as a translator and proofreader since August 2000. My main areas of translation are art, architecture, culture and academic writing from Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and French into English.

I have also translated a variety of texts including music biography, fiction, poetry, non-fiction, manuals and articles. These span many different subjects such as dance, film, anatomy, oil production, and Sami yoik. In addition, I offer proofreading and editing services in both English and Norwegian.

I have an MPhil in Art History and Classics (Ancient Greek and Latin) from the University of Oslo and have previously studied Philosophy at Heythrop College, University College London.

I have always been bilingual and multicultural, with a Norwegian mother and a British father. In addition, I have lived and worked in both England and Norway for many years as an adult. At the moment I am based in London, but also spend time in Norway.

I am a member of the Norwegian Authors and Translators Association (NFF).
