Member of the Bundesverband der Übersetzer und Dolmetscher (BDÜ) -- The German Association of Translators and Interpreters

I focus on marketing, IT, and technical texts.

I have been translating from German into English since 1995. My background is split between two relevant career strands. Professionally, my background is in book publishing, where I have worked as a Managing Editor and as an Acquisitions Editor for various NYC publishing houses. Academically, I am in the final stages of finishing a Ph.D. in German Language and Literature, and have received many honors over the course of my studies, including a Full-Maintenance Fulbright Award and an extension from the German Fulbright committee.

Book translations, both literature and non-fiction, are a siginificant part of my business. My most recent project: The Family Office, A Practical Guide to Strategically and Operationally Managing Family Wealth (ISBN 3319990845), for which I also authored a chapter.

I am partnered with my wife, Paula Sidore, in a wine translation business. For more information visit
