About Me
I am a registered physiotherapist from Melbourne, Australia, who has also completed a four-month internship at a translation company in Tel Aviv, Israel (as part of a six-month program called Career Israel). I was born in Yekaterinburg (former USSR) and migrated to Australia at the age of nine.

I am passionate about creative writing and languages. I love reading and writing short stories and poetry in both Russian and English. I have been interested in translating since I was 15 years old, and I translated two science fiction novels from Russian into English while still in high school so that my friends could read them. My professional translation work has ranged from medical documentation and journal articles to computer game dialogue and science fiction novels.

I am looking for ongoing freelance work in the field of translation and would like to establish a working relationship with reputable translation companies.
