German-to-English Translator, Online Tutor, Musician, Radio Presenter


I've been writing songs since the age of nine, achieving some success in a song competition on local radio as a teenager. In more recent years, I played piano for a gospel choir in Switzerland and continued to perform live after I returned to the UK in 2015.   

Through my hobby as a local radio presenter, I began interviewing and promoting local musicians on my shows on Radio Deeside

In December 2020, I wrote and recorded my debut single, Covid Christmas. Released by Rent & Debt Records, it is available to download and stream on Amazon in the UK, Amazon in Germany, as well as on iTunes and Spotify. The video can be viewed on YouTube, and on several websites in Switzerland (with a German description and my German translation of the lyrics). I am very grateful to Veronika Müller-Mäder for her help in publicising the video abroad.
