More About the Author
I graduated in Social Anthropology and Visual Anthropology and recently re-entered academia to complete a part-time, postgraduate degree in history on the formation of the revolutionary journalist Jean-Paul Marat.
After quickly realising that no one knew what Anthropology was, I trained as a documentary filmmaker (making a short film about the role of arts therapy in mental health) and volunteered for several charities (Greenpeace, Oxfam, IVS etc) before being asked to produce a special edition of TVE's The Moving Pictures Bulletin on woman's issues for the UN, and then moving on into non-fiction publishing as an editor and writer at DK, Quarto, Hodder and Virgin.
Most recently, I worked for a start-up helping to test and promote 'The Craftsman', "the world's first immersive thriller for iPad", along with 'ThrillMe', an interactive online movie discovery service.
I do a variety of French-English proofing and translation work for academic, legal, cookery, gaming and technology clients. I also translate plays (highly commended by the Gate Theatre) and poems. One day I would love the opportunity to resubtitle one of my favourite films, Godard's 'A Bout de Souffle'.
Besides the titles shown here, I have produced and written content on a range of subjects, including religion, philosophy, origami, dinosaurs, rock music, alien travelguides, and even anthropology, for e-guides, handbooks, partworks, encyclopedias and coffee-table paperweights.
I divide my free time between attempting to reanimate Marat's corpse, scripting James Dean and Marilyn Monroe on a first date, inventing new cocktails and compiling soundtracks to non-existent films.
