About

I was born in Lancashire, north west England, and had a fantastic childhood full of hill walking, fresh air and mud. But growing up in a village where everyone knew everyone else, I couldn’t wait to get out into the world and experience new places.

As a result, I moved to Dublin at 18, went to university in London and studied in Girona for a year, before settling down in Barcelona. After seven years there I made the leap to Mexico City, and finally decided to move again in 2016 when I accepted a job in the Netherlands.

I’ve always had a passion for languages and linguistics, reading and writing. I studied Spanish and Linguistics and worked as an English teacher, freelance journalist and translator before finding my way to online content and eventually copywriting and UX writing.

Language-wise, I speak fluent Spanish and Catalan and some rusty French, and can swear and toast in a whole range of other European languages thanks to Erasmus friends and Barcelona flatmates. Dutch should be the next language added to the list, but so far the less said about my Dutch skills, the better.

When I’m not writing, I love swimming and snorkelling, travelling to new places and trying new foods, taking photos and watching football. If you’re lucky, I might even bake you a cake.
