About me

Originally from a small town on the Mediterranean coast, by age 25 I’d had the chance to live in five different countries across three continents (Spain, the US, France, the UK and Japan), so a career in foreign languages seemed only right.

I translated on a whole range of topics in my early days – from hair care product specifications to health and safety manuals for wind farms, separation agreements and academic records – until a certain J.P. Morgan crossed my path and I found my love for finance and the asset management industry.

I branched out to financial journalism in 2012 and have been happily combining translation and writing ever since.
