Having graduated in 2000 with a First in English from the University of Bristol in the UK, I worked for a leading legal publisher in London until departing for Germany in 2006. There, I completed a Master of Arts in Comparative European Ethnology at the University of Regensburg, where I wrote my dissertation on the representation of migration history in museums in Berlin and London.

I stayed on at the University of Regensburg as assistant to the ethnographer and cultural anthropologist Katharina Eisch-Angus. Following which, I joined the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society in Munich as the coordinator of a new online Multimedia Library for the environmental humanities. From 2013 to 2016, I was Editor at Eurozine in Vienna, where I remained a contributing editor until 2019. In August 2016, I became an independent translator, editor and writer.
