Bio
I was born in Biloxi, Mississippi in 1973 to Croatian parents and grew up speaking both English and Croatian on a daily basis. I excelled in school as a child and was very versatile and verse in activities that had to do with stimulating the verbal part of the mind. At a young age, my mother enlisted my help as a translator and taught me much as well in the process. In 1985, my mother Iva's illness led her to take me to Croatia where she passed away within a few days. I stayed with my mother's sister and became an exchange student in the Croatian school system in Metkovic. I excelled further in my translation abilities in translating topics that were related to my major, mostly economics, management, entrepreneurship, marketing, etc. After high school, I spent two semesters at the College of Economics in Split, Croatia in 1992. Since that time I have translated two books, one of which is a book by Frano Glavina about the capital of the peninsula of Peljesac, Trpanj (1996). I have translated literary material on the Historical Archives of Croatia after World War II, as well as personal letters, among other things. I started off doing this seasonally, then eventually translated advertising materials for Playboy Digipay through Brian Fukuma for pay (2007). Since then I have continued to translate seasonally while I have worked regular jobs in accounts payable and bookkeeping in the meantime. I hold a masters degree in business administration from the University of New Orleans. I find translating to be an expression of the innermost self and of the inner soul. Although I translate for pay, I continue to translate as voluntary work on occasion because it is fulfilling and because I enjoy every minute of the act itself. I am looking to land a full time job as a translator for an agency that will allow the creative juices to fully flow. At present, I am a subcontractor for Transperfect Translations.
