Overview

I am a trained actor, writer and teacher offering services in writing, editing, ESL lesson planning, French-to-English translation and voice.

With a BA in Theater and a double minor in French and English Creative Writing, I understand the impact of words on an audience. I am young and new to Elance, but what I lack in long-term experience, I make up for in commitment, creativity, and quality. When assigned a project, I will follow through and deliver a product that is unique, top-notch, and most importantly, to order.

Portfolio

I watch too much of it
The delicate art of dubbing
.... leaving me in charge
Or, sexism en franšais
It's up to you not be be harassed or hit on
Like Hollywood, only worse
Bŕtises... the language barrier
Strange weather patterns.
Getting in, getting around
The Backstreet Boys always know what to say
All the ways Edinburgh is better than where I live
Second cousins in London! Who knew?
Little girls say the darnedest things
My friend, Guy, is a champion of knitting
My new internet bf, er, I mean, favorite video blogger
The magic of Marta
They've got that tower...
Getting to CÓdiz
I never want to leave
Wait, did I really just live in France for seven months?
So I'm really doing it
When you're unemployed, there's no vacation
My life is an ode to childhood.

Service Description

I am a freelance actor and writer who has worked in the Twin Cities for two years, both performing in and writing promotional materials for shows. I specialize in dialect work, having played characters in Scots, RP British, and Polish. My own accent is American, from the Pacific Northwest.

I write a blog following my experiences living outside the U.S. and examining culture shock with a sense of humor. My time spent in Cameroon and France during and after my studies has helped me reach fluency in French, and I have often acted as a casual translator for friends and other traveling Americans.

I have classroom experience in the States as well as abroad. My background in theater allows me to create engaging dialogues and activities for ESL students while my own work in teaching reminds me to keep things simple.

Whether you're looking for writing, voice or translation, my well-rounded and diverse experiences are what you need.
