Welcome to my blog!

Trained as a professional musician, I have worked as a viola player with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra since 1998. I also have a BA in German and English, which I achieved with first class honours and work as a translator from German to English, specialising in music and mountain sports and tourism. As well as performing, I give pre-concert talks and write articles on music. Currently studying for an MA in translation studies, I am at the moment researching Wagner translations.
