About me
I have a BA in French with linguistics from Nazareth College of Rochester and am certified in NY state for secondary education. I also have a diploma from the Eastman School of Music with a major in piano and theory. US citizen,married to a French national and have been living in France since 1974, I am bi-lingual and bi-cultural. I teach English in Aix-en-Provence.

I have a working knowledge of Russian.

My first steps in translation were varied and interesting and inspired me to continue in the field:

Pass City Collection: Marseille, Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, Toulouse, Montpellier, Bordeaux, Grenoble, Cassis, Camargue. (Tourist guidebooks distributed in 4 star hotels in several French cities)

"A Blue Bag of Tales" ("Contes et Rencontres"): Compared fairy tales and legends from European countries.(2000-2001)

Co-translation for book on new technology in businesses: Meta Organizations

European Enlargement: a report done for the Communes Européennes

I have gone on to even more exciting projects with the bulk of my work in the fields of fashion, cosmetics and art.
