I asked my son what my defining features are, and he replied, ‘You’re tall and nosey.’ The way I spin it, I’m statuesque and always curious about everything.
A creative writer, language nerd and lover of good design and craftsmanship, I live in multicultural, dog-friendly Barcelona, enjoying its relaxed coastal vibe and beautiful countryside.
Ask me what I do for a living, and I‘m only half joking when I reply: ‘I sell dreams.’
After a trilingual upbringing in Sweden, I spent over a decade in London’s advertising & marketing world while also studying psychology. Then I found myself in southern France during my son’s childhood, where I began a new career as a translator of editorial and marketing texts for clients at the very top of their game.
With my rare skill set – creative mindset, language skills, and talent for persuasive writing – I’m a natural at helping non-natives present their products, services and ideas in the best light to English-speakers. In an Anglo world where culture wars are raging, I also guide my clients around the pitfalls of political correctness.
My goal is to help you achieve the English marketing results you need, within your budget. You can talk to me in English, French, Swedish or Spanish, and if I’m not a good fit for your project, I’ll be happy to recommend other alternatives.
