Hi. I am a former ESL and Japanese language teacher and have been working as a freelance translator since 2012. I have always been fascinated with languages. The job of a translator is really rewarding and intellectually exciting, and I appreciate every opportunity of working on my translation projects.

翻訳に興味を持ったのは大学で翻訳の授業をとってからです。在学中に1年間アメリカ留学しました。日本の大学を卒業後、1年半英会話の講師を務め1990年に再渡米。それ以来29年間アメリカに在住しています。日本語教授法で修士を取り90年代はアメリカの大学で日本語を教えていました。その後コンピュータに興味を持ちInstructional Design & Technologyで二つ目の修士を取りました。

My fields of expertise are in IT (Information Technology) and Computers in general. I am also interested in Graphic Design and Media/Multimedia. I am a proficient Adobe InDesign and Photoshop user.
