About me
I grew up in London. Learned to read and write in English before I did in Russian. Used to be bilingual, but since I no longer have dreams in English, I guess that's over.

Translation is more of a passion than a profession for me; still, if it's true that "you are what you do", then I'm definitely a translator, because that's what I do practically every day ever since the age of 15 when I was first asked to interpret at a press conference.

I mainly translate fiction and movie scripts, but people often turn to me for other kinds of translation help because I'm fast and pretty accurate, for a person who only specializes in one field (da, I'm pretty modest, too); that's how I get myself into all sorts of translation trouble which results in my panicky appearances on KudoZ.

I'm also a frequent KudoZ Asker because I often feel the need to brainstorm over a word or a phrase, and this is truly the best place with the best people to do it with.

Thanks for visiting my profile. :)
