Welcome to my website!

I'm an experienced linguist, editor, and novelist, and I'm keen to empower learners with language and storytelling.

  • I offer high-quality editorial/translation services.

  • With my online writing and language workshops, seminars and courses, I aim to turn adult learners into confident, independent speakers/writers.

  • I tailor all my services to adapt to the needs of the learner and ensure an accessible, committed, and collaborative learning experience.

  • I use my own learning experience to not only deliver clear, manageable learning steps, but to explain the method I use.

Latest Episode

Why Blue as an Orange?

The name comes from ‘The earth is blue as an orange’, the first line of a famous poem by French surrealist poet, Paul Eluard, and by far the most intriguing opening line ever written. It's also the perfect excuse to use my two favourite colours for the design of this website!
