Constant flow of editorial & proofreading work.

Having lived in many countries from a young age, I have been imbued with a cultural understanding of each country, its language & use thereof. I am proud of being able to produce translations that read as originals in flowing & correct English while maintaining the gist & tenor of the source text.
I am a voracious reader & erudite on a number of abstruse and disparate subjects & am skilled at research.
