A South African currently based in Guatemala, I deliver high-quality work in most varieties of English as well as in Afrikaans. I've been working with words professionally since the early 1990s, am a published author and I bring not only quality but also passion to every project. I also have a working knowledge of Dutch, German and Spanish.
