Recent translation projects in the following fields: Journalism, Contemporary Theater, Agronomy, Cooking and Wine.

In-depth understanding of the French language and French and Francophone cultures due to extensive travel, study and work experience in Francophone countries, including: one year of study in France at the University of Aix-Marseille; thesis research in Martinique; six months in Senegal, including a home stay and language and culture classes at the University of Dakar; and, most recently, two years teaching English in France, at the University of Avignon.

Strong oral and written communication skills in English and French honed in over twelve years of inspired and inspiring work in the field of foreign language education. The ability to work independently towards a set goal on a tight deadline due to years of designing and teaching curriculum to fit within the academic calendar.
