Freelance Japanese Translator/Interpreter

As a freelance translator, I devote my language skills to a variety of mediums and topics, from highly specialized legal and medical translation, to colloquial and silly manga and pop culture translation. Accepting a variety of projects and working with many different clients always keeps me learning, and increases my skills for what may come in the future. I pride myself on my research ability, and the quality I deliver in the final product.

Review from Emmy-Award Winner Leo Eaton

I worked as the post production Japanese to English translator of 'Sacred Journeys,' a PBS documentary airing in 2014. Translating over 20+ hours of raw Japanese footage into English, then editing the final cut down into an hour show, it was an extraordinary honor to work with Emmy-Award winning Director, writer, and producer, Leo Eaton.

Florida State University

B.A., Japanese Language and Culture/International Studies

I had known what my major would be since I was in elementary school. Having devoured every book on Japanese culture, history and language from a young age, my overwhelming interest was always going to be my focus. Earning one of only eight degrees in Japanese for the 2012 year at FSU, I was able to be a T.A. in senior level Japanese, as well as a Japanese tutor.
