Why me?

  • I have dual citizenship, British and Italian. London opened my eyes, connected me to many wonderful people from all around the world. The result is that I have been using English, French and Italian for many years on a daily basis, so I can guarantee deep understanding of the message you wish to communicate.


  • I have been working as an Italian teacher for many years, so I can guarantee deep understanding of the Italian language and culture.


  • I also have years of experience as a Travel Agent, Estate Agent, Property Investor and Volunteer Archaeologist. Through these jobs I have extended my language knowledge of various disciplines related to the sectors I now work with (Legal & Commercial, Medical and Web), so that you can rely on a professional who knows the concepts behind them.


I am organized, reliable and committed to achieve the best results, making a difference through language.


Let me take care of all your linguistic needs. To help promote your business. To help you succeed.
