People are fascinating in their diversity.

As a language professional, I take pride in helping others engage with this diversity to achieve effective and meaningful communication.

I am a freelance translator, proofreader, and editor working from French and Russian into both UK and US English. I am an honors graduate of both the B.A. in European Studies and the MPhil in Literary Translation at Trinity College, Dublin. I am a native English speaker and have lived in Russia, France, Ireland, and the USA.

I am currently the sole language editor for Immortal Games UK, for whom I collaborate with five different writers to produce Story Games, a text-based adventure app. I also work on legal, technical, real estate, marketing, and creative content with both direct clients and agencies across four continents. I most recently translated a book based on a popular video game from French to English. This project is still under NDA.

In 2018, I was the sole translator and proofreader on the Russian-English translation of White is the Darkest Colour, a 650-page fantasy adventure novel by author Kate Lam. I collaborated successfully with the author and editor to meet the book’s Amazon release date.

Languages are my passion – quality work is my pride.
