About me
I have a graduate degree in economics from Laval University, Quebec City. At the undergraduate level, I specialized in political science at the University of Toronto, where I also earned a minor in botany, which nowadays involves more genetics and ecosystems biology than naming plants. My formal education includes foundations of a large variety of fields, including the main branches of the natural sciences, mathematics, philosophy and language arts.

I translate and edit to pay the bills and have specific interests in researching challenges relating to supply chain management and logistics for agricultural inputs in developing countries, and more general professional interest in diverse theoretical and practical approaches to development.

When I have free time, I like to keep up to date with some of the main journals in my fields of interest, stay on top of current events via blogs and major news outlets, and read any books I get my hands on that can grow my mind. I like to play violin, guitar, piano and hand drums when the situation arises and at some stage when I have 4-5 weeks and a quiet place, I will iron out and record a few more compositions. I also enjoy hiking in the backwaters of the world and rarely turn down a chance to go for a swim.

As far as translation is concerned, it is certainly work. It is work that rarely fails to stimulate the mind, even if it is not always exciting. This is due to opportunities to learn about the organizations, people, concepts, technologies and issues involved in documents which require translation or editing services.

I am a small operator. I outcompete other small players on quality and the best in the business on price. I guarantee satisfaction with final outputs. Every quoted price is a maximum, not minimum charge. Strong networks take time to build. New clients, of a particular nature, are still sought.
