About me
Native-level English and French proficiency, in addition to my original Hebrew and interoperability among them, have made languages in general and translation in particular my natural vocational choice.

The years I invested in higher education in culturally and linguistically diverse environments - BA at Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel; non-degree studies at Rijksuniversiteit Leiden, the Netherlands; doctorate at Ecole des hautes etudes en sciences sociales (EHESS), Paris, France; MBA at INSEAD, Fontainebleau, France, and ordination at Hebrew Union College, Cincinnati, U.S.A. - have further enhanced my multi-lingual and cross-cultural pursuit.

Likewise, at times during which I was involved in other career paths, I kept nurturing those skills, adding German and Dutch and attaining the ability to translate from them complex scientific, technological, economic, financial, organizational, legal as well as literary, artistic and religious source materials.

My long exposure to, and involvement with diverse professional and academic fields improved my capacity to process complex source materials in new and challenging content areas. They have afforded me direct operational and executive experience in the civil service, science policy, international scientific relations, technological analysis and forecasting, international affairs, diplomacy, university instruction, managing interns – among other things.

Equally beneficial was my involvement in a wide array of academic fields such as linguistics, history, sociology, political sciences, economics, literature, religious studies, Jewish studies, art history, international relations, conflict management and resolution, applied psychology, and area studies (Russian, Eastern European, Middle Eastern, East Asian, Southeast Asian and South Asian).

Over the years I have become an expert Hebrew linguist, working across styles, registers and socio-cultural variables and providing services such as teaching Modern and Biblical Hebrew and Biblical Aramaic, performing and coaching talents in Hebrew voice-over; Modern Hebrew oral and written proficiency testing and rating; revising, scoring and evaluating writing and translation work.

Currently, in addition to being a full time translator and language instructor, I continue to pursue my scholarly interest and civic involvement in international affairs, interfaith relations, cross-cultural education and religious studies in general, and Jewish studies and Middle East affairs in particular.
