I specialize in interpretation services between English (American accent) and Chinese (both Mandarin and Chinese). I typically get involved in an interpretation project with 10-20 hours commitment spread out between 3-4 days. Sometimes after project conclusion I offer value-added services such as marketing, vendor search (look for same or similar vendors in US / China), and even product launches.
I've taken on interpretation assignments with law firms doing casework in China, assisting with trade shows with multinational companies in San Francisco, and other high value projects.
I've worked as a business development exec and am currently a product leader at a software company in San Francisco. Feel free to see my full profile here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/andyzhu87/
I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Management from University of California, Merced. I've finished international programs at top Chinese universities (Fudan University in Shanghai, University of Hong Kong in Hong Kong). I have exposure to areas of international business, economics, business law, lean management practices, agile software development and user experience design.
Previously I have applied to the State Department as a Foreign Service Officer specializing in economics. Although I did not choose to become a FSO, I was classified as a "native level speaker" (highest level) in both Mandarin and Cantonese.
I am married and reside in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have traveled to 20+ countries.
