Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $43

I am a mixed background writer and literary translator. I am most concerned with accuracy and precision in language. A recent translation of a literary project has won an Award at an artists's festival in Dubai. I also give presentations on cultural awareness, which is useful when working or travelling abroad, getting to know new business clients or cultural interest. I am always working to break through cultural barriers. I have translated and edited a number of poetry collections, films and documents.
