I took my nationality and made it part of my logo for the following reasons:
- It is immediately obvious that English and French are part of my linguistic repertoire.
- “Made in Canada/Fabriqué au Canada” is indicative of high quality and a work ethic that is characterized by being polite and reliable. The Globe and Mail wrote an article about ʻthe Canada brandʼ; here’s the link.
I have been shaped by four languages, three countries, and two cultures. I spent the first twenty years of my life on Cape Breton Island, and I decided to move to Vienna because I have relatives here through my Greek father. My academic career began at St. Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I attended courses in German studies and linguistics before continuing my studies at the University of Vienna. In 2016, I completed my master’s degree in conference interpreting, graduating from the University of Vienna with honours; that was also the year that I began working as a freelance conference interpreter and translator.
