I've been freelance translating while completing my bachelors in Comparative Literature, alongside working on my own translation projects.

A brief bio: I was born in Belgium and moved to the United States when I was young, hence I was thrown early on into different languages. Today, I speak/read/write in English, Dutch/Flemish, German, French, and Italian. The exchange of information and ideas across linguistic and geographic borders greatly interests me, which is why, I believe, I enjoy translating texts so much.
If you would like to know anything more about me, please do not hesitate to reach out.
I look forward to hearing from you!
