I have the Japanese Language Proficiency Test Level 2 and completed a one-year Japanese Language Program at Waseda University, Tokyo. I also have an MA Japanese Studies from the University of Leeds, UK. I lived in Japan for about 10 years, teaching English as a Second Language to children and adults. I'm familiar with Japanese culture and I also practise aikido. Before this, I studied music and worked as a freelance musician for a few years, playing double bass and bass guitar in orchestras, bands and music theatre.

My experience includes translating and proofreading entries and articles on travel and tourism, food and drink, Twitter messages, Amazon product descriptions, website terms of use, medical-related letters and entries, Japanese professional soccer team website, angling, toys & games, and machine translations. I'm also available for transcription work from Japanese to English.
