I am 25 years of age and a recent graduate, working full time in the Paris area. I am currently working as an in-house legal (French- English)
and have been studying Italian intensively for almost a year now with a view to translating from a third source language in the near future.
I also enjoy writing creatively in my spare time, although more as a side project than on a professional level.

In terms of my career objectives, my intention is to gain as much experience as possible over a large area of legal topics, especially any
legal content with a European or international aspect. As a young translator (25 years), I would like to improve my skills as much as
possible, and am fully focused on making a career in this field. I have studied the Law of the European Union in both English and French
degree programs and have practical experience of summarising the impact of recent EU regulations and directives in my current post, an
opportunity which has allowed me to gain valuable terminology and linguistic knowledge. More generally, my long-term career objective
would be to work in some capacity within a large European institution.

Recently, I have recently submitted translations for a Luxembourg outsourcing company for the EU Commission as a freelance translator.

I have also strong experience in financial, taxation, immigration and employment law areas, as well as general competencies derived from
working in large multinational companies in Paris.

My primary language pair is French to English, and I would consider my self to have excellent spoken and written skills in French. I am also
currently enrolled in a 2 year Italian Language class in Paris.

In my spare time, I am the acting captain for an expatriate football side (mixed French and English/Irish)who play in a Sunday league near
Vincennes in Paris, and with whom I train twice a week. I am also currently enrolled in an auto-école in the Véme arrondissement.

I have lived in Paris with my long-term girlfriend for almost 3 years now, in the 18th arrondissement.
