Ouch!!! Pinch Eddy's nose to see his many faces! Rather than making this page look like your typical CV, I prefer just to tell you a bit about myself in a less formal manner. You will not only learn about the relevant professional details of my life that way, but also get a feeling for the kind of person you'd be dealing with.

I was born in the Netherlands 53 years ago and started speaking Dutch ten months later. When I was six, I began to learn both the English and German language, culminating in a baccalaureate certificate for all three languages and the major sciences.

I liked languages, in fact I also learned French, Italian and a bit of Polish and Bulgarian at some point in my life, but at the time I was absolutely obsessed with computers. It was the time of Atari's and Commodore's, and the first Apple's and IBM's started appearing. I couldn't help myself. I just had to jump on that train.

India I studied IT, but afterwards I just didn't feel like working in that particular field. I had developed a burning interest in psychology and philosophy, not academically, but on a very personal level. I followed that call and I've been travelling, living and working in different countries of the world ever since. I lived in India, Italy, Poland and Germany until I finally settled in Scotland.

I have worked as a travel agent, bartender, shipping agent and airline manager. I have sold computers and I have milked cows. I founded and created an online search portal and sold it again. And last, but not least in this context, I have been a freelance translator for 10 years now.

free and relaxed All these different experiences have made me into who I am today. I have specialized in a small number of fields, and I possess a wealth of knowledge about a wide variety of subjects. I have been actively using all these languages I've learned, not only on a professional, but also on a very personal level.

Even now, there are so many different things I'm interested in, but I found that I just love to work with language. Being a freelance translator enables me to work flexible hours, and allows me to spend more time in relaxation.
I have always appreciated the value of mixing the professional with the personal. Why should it be business OR pleasure? I'd like to have both.

So if all of this hasn't turned you off yet, feel free to contact me

Service with a Smile
