About me: Greetings!
I was born and raised in Russia, where at the age of 7 I was challenged by my older sister to repeat after her weird-sounding phrases in English and German. What meant to be a mocking of a seven-year-old quickly turned into an obsession and main addiction that powered my commitment to foreign language classes and rebellion against "too-much-sense math" throughout school years. Less catastrophic results were my decision to get a degree in linguistics, moving to the U.S., and getting hooked on Turkish coffee which turns me into a Translation Machine (not to be confused with Machine Translation).
I teach English Composition and Humanities at one of the universities in Wisconsin, I also teach English as a Second Language at one of the local colleges here. My hobbies are writing children's books and working out. Oftentimes, my workdays are longer than an average person's, but that's when a pot of Turkish coffee does the trick!
With each freelance project I undertake, I guarantee attention to detail and high quality work delivered on or before deadline and prompt response to your phone calls and e-mails.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or proposals about translation projects, writing or teaching opportunities.
