Candidates are given a short glossary a week before the exam.  They are not permitted to scope/edit their file on exam day, and must achieve a 98% pass mark.  Please note that the QRR accreditation is only available to active BIVR members.

  • About Our Member

  • Whether it be Abu Dhabi or Arusha, Dubai or Dusseldorf, Lithuania or Luxembourg, Paris or Prague, the world really is a stenographer's oyster. At the moment, however, it's Zoom or Skype, etc, and so our homes are our new oysters.

    As a freelancing realtime stenographer based in London, I have extensive experience in providing realtime and transcript services for:
    • US depositions – e.g. pharma, patent, telecommunications, technology
    • Canadian discovery examinations
    • International arbitrations – e.g. ICC, UNCITRAL, ICSID, LCIA
    • Court hearings (both locally and internationally)
    • Captioning – eg. Microsoft, Apple, trade unions, arts & culture, family court

    Throughout the initial lockdown of 2020, I gained two American certifications - Registered Professional Reporter (RPR) and Certified Realtime Reporter (CRR). I also hold BIVR's Qualified Realtime Reporter accreditation (with distinction) at both level 1 (2009) and level 2 (2017).

    I trained as a stenographer in 1990/91 in Brisbane. Upon graduating, I moved for work to Adelaide, which was followed by a move to London in 1995. The rest, as they say, is history.

    Currently working remotely due to travel restrictions. For possible in-person assignments, please do contact me.

    Australian passport is current and valid for travel worldwide, including to the EU from UK.
