I was born in Finland to a British-Finnish family with a flair for professional travel. I was raised in an English- speaking environment from Helsinki through Lusaka, Rome, Banbury, London and Auckland.
I started teaching Italian at university, then my passion for photography, travel and the Mediterranean led me back to Rome where I have also specialized as a PCO and translator in international affairs and legalese.
As a traveler, I share my natural curiosity and regard for different cultures and customs.
Working with languages is magnificent and I enjoy it very much. It’s all about communication and human relationships, sharing, filling gaps, as well as gaining confidence and insight into other ways of thinking or living, likewise comparing our own.
Teaching English is a fantastic experience, our learners’ smiles our greatest reward.
