About

I am a Berlin-based writer and translator from the UK.


A professional German-English translator, my past clients include the international literature festival odesa and Literaturhaus Berlin. I work predominantly in the audio-visual translation sector, subtitling films, documentaries and other projects. I also surtitle plays for various theatres across Europe.

My creative writing has appeared in various online publications, including Elsewhere Journal, Counter Service, Daddy Magazine, Slink Chunk Press and Visual Verse. In print, I can be found in SAND Journal and Berlin Spoken Word volumes I and II, and I am anthologised in the 2018 National Flash Fiction Day Anthology and in the Love, Pride issue of Ellipsis Zine in 2019.

I was shortlisted for the 2018 Mslexia Novella Award, the 2018 Cambridge Short Story Prize, the 2017 Bristol Short Story Prize, the 2016 Reader Berlin x Exberliner Short Story Competition and the 2016 Mslexia Children’s Novel Competition. In 2018, I was the studentische stadtschreiberin (student writer in residence) in Berlin.

In the winter of 2020, I will be a fellow at the Saari Residency, where I intend to finish a flash fiction novella about desire and place.
