About me
After receiving my Masters from Columbia University, I spent over five years in China studying Chinese business and marketing and working as a professional translator. I have translated over 800,000 words of marketing and advertising materials for automotive and IT companies, luxury goods retailers, real estate firms and educational training companies. I have also worked on website and app localization for international retailers of products including cosmetics, watches, baby products and TCM. I have academic articles published in American journals in the humanities and natural sciences.

I have done extensive translation, editing and and voiceover work for the informational and promotional materials of the Gansu Province Railway Bureau. In 2015, I served as translator and interpreter for the U.S. Department of State Office of Global Education visit to Xi'an, China. My specialties are marketing, education and business translations. My passion for translation and for China is evident in my work and in my blog on contemporary Chinese society.

Please message me if you are interested in collaborating on a project - I look forward to working with you!
