I also have acquired a good bit of experience with contracts, court transcripts and other legal documents, as well as medical and pharmaceutical texts. I have done a number of scientific and academic texts for researchers and medical professionals at the University of Tübingen. In the environmental field, I continue to do most of the English translation for the German Federal Environmental Foundation (Deutsche Bundesstifung Umwelt, DBU). 

I have translated websites for every kind of institution from racetracks to Austrian Boys' Choirs.

I am a native of Tennessee and for 40 years was mainly a singer and keyboard player. I worked as a backing musician with some big country, rock, and blues stars -- on tour and in TV and recording studios -- on both sides of the Atlantic, also a good bit solo and with bands of my own, before beginning to work as a translator here in Germany in 2012. I am now 66 years old.

I studied Medieval and Renaissance English Literature, Dramatic Arts (Acting), and Creative Writing at the University of Maryland in College Park, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Arts and Humanities in 1975.

I have lived for a total of 19 years in Germany, where my two multilingual daughters were born. Both are now grown, and are dual citizens of the USA and Germany.

I love nature and live in a small village in Swabia (Baden-Württemberg, southwestern Germany) which borders on a huge nature preserve, where I love to hike and hunt for wild edible mushrooms. I also read a lot of literature in both English (especially 19th-Century English) and German.
