I'm a German native and I've lived near Cape Town, South Africa since 2002, teaching the local and foreign community in my mother tongue. I’ve presented my own German show at Radio Helderberg 93.6fm until 2014, and I still do voice recordings for the radio station and other clients on an ad-hoc basis.
I’ve been passionate about languages all my life and studied English, French, Spanish, Afrikaans, and isiXhosa at university. My main focus, however, remains on the German and English languages, which are spoken by millions of people around the world and will open doors to each person wanting to acquire not only a rich vocabulary but take on an entire culture that, for centuries, has produced fine literature and some of the world’s greatest minds.
I received my BA degree in English from the University of Cape Town in 2008, having worked in the accounts and customer care departments at a German television provider based in South Africa from 2006-2020.
I’m a member of SATI (the South African Translators’ Institute) and also work as a freelance translator, scriptwriter, voiceover, and virtual assistant for local and international clients.
