20 years of detail oriented accomplishments. Many satisfied clients ranging from Italian and American telecommunications companies, banks, law firms, courts, manufacturing companies, government agencies and other translation agencies. I am a former professor of Italian, French and Latin. Last teaching assignment at the University of Maryland at College Park.

I have published a book on the Italian poet Camillo Sbarbaro, whose poetry and prose I have translated, and a number of articles on various topics of Italian literature and translation. Other, major translation assignments include a 5 volume 18th century history of the Order of Jerusalem, a variety of articles from English to Italian and from Italian to English and a number of poets. Most recently I have translated excerpts from the works of John Cornwell (into Italian), Stefano Marcelli and Dacia Maraini (into English)).
