I offer high-quality, professional translation subtitling, and editing from Dutch, German, and French to English. I have a BA in Comparative Literature with minors in Creative Writing (specialization: translation) and Environmental Studies from Princeton University.

I first seriously began translation at university, and have had the opportunity to learn from Jhumpa Lahiri, American author and translator, winner of the 29th PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in the Short story, as well as Idra Novey, Tracy K. Smith, and Sandra Bermann. For my senior thesis I translated over fifty poems from German, French, and Dutch into English. Several of these translations recently appeared in Conjunctions 73: Earth Elegies.

In addition to translation, I love to write poetry and work outside in the garden.
