My published literary work includes a co-translation of a book by José Eduardo Agualusa, as well as translating short fiction by Gabriela Ruivo Trindade, Clodie Vasli and Decio Zylbersztajn.
I work on a regular basis for Spanish sports paper MARCA, adapting content for their English language website and sometimes penning original pieces.
In 2022 so far, I have translated a Brazilian novel and four Portuguese children’s books. I also edited an anthology of Afro-Brazilian short stories (which included six of my own translations), to be published in 2023 by UCL Press.
