Who I am
Of mixed origins, my father studied at Winchester College, obtained his flying licence from the Hamble College of Air Training before he made his career in tea by working for James Finlay, a globally renowned British commodities company. As a result, until my early 20’s, I spent my life as an expatriate in many exotic places such as India, Jakarta and Singapore.
My mother tongue is English and I am perfectly bilingual. Having studied in English academic institutions, I also learned French at a young age as it was present within my family. It later became my second language in school and in 1983 I obtained my degree in Economics and Business French.
Passionate about French culture, it was only natural for me to move to Paris in 1984. Since then, I have made France my home and opted for French citizenship. I have travelled extensively in Asia, Europe and the United States, but Brittany appealed to me the most and is my permanent home since mid 2002. As Brittany has a large British community, I decided to employ my professional skills by offering my translation and administrative experience to anglophones in Brittany and in France.
