EducationGraduated Magna Cum Laude from Macalester College in Saint Paul Minnesota
Majored in Japanese Language and Culture
Awarded Honors in Japanese Language Department
I graduated from college with honors in Japanese language and culture. After that, I lived in Japan for three years, working as a translator in the manga (comics) publishing industry.
I have worked on over ten published titles, many of which are geared towards learning Japanese reading and writing.
Currently, I do translation for film companies looking to shoot in Japan, but I have very little chance to speak Japanese in Portland when I'm not on the job. I'd be happy to help pretty much any level of language learner or provide 和会話 (Japanese conversation) on a focused topic or lesson.
HobbiesI love drawing, and try to make comics in my spare time. I'm also interested in web design and technology. When I can pry myself away from the computer I'm usually in the kitchen baking.
