Events and training
I graduated from UCLA, having also studied at Doshisha Daigaku in Kyoto (and study abroad in high school). I am certified as an Instructor of the Alexander Technique.

The majority of my translation is business related. Projects include: Work Rules (就業規則) and other employment policies and contracts; other Human Resource and management information; advertisements and marketing materials; stockholder information; company information including web pages, etc.; contracts; all visitor information for a World Expo 2005, Aichi, Japan exhibitor; interviews; insurance manuals; Formula 1 exhibits; business plan analyses; press releases; business letters; resumes; conference and trade show information and brochures; technical manuals and presentations; tv related market research reports; personal documents etc. Subjects include Human Resources, management, marketing, advertisements, stockholder information, Alexander Technique, non-violent communication, alternative healthcare, organic foods, travel, culture (dance, cooking, etc.) and pets (dogs, horses).

I also have experience translating technical diagnostic information at Canon USA and Canon Argentina (photocopiers, printers and other office equipment), joint venture contracts and aviation related information at Toyota Motor Corporation and human resource related laws and information at Nihon Keizai Shimbun America. I also handle manual translation projects for food packaging machinery.

I have interpreted for executives of each of these corporations in technical, training, and business strategy meetings. I played the major role in a set of NHK Basic English educational videos, explaining points of grammar. Other interpreting work includes business meetings and dinners, seminars, workshops, sightseeing and travel coordination.
