Why Japan? A fascination with travel and a desire to go where few Midwest natives have ever been to lead me to the country, not to mention a strong interest in the culture and technology of Japan. My father’s IT work led him to several business trips in the Kanto region in the late '90s, and a chance encounter with Japanese classes in college started me on the path to my current line of work.
Currently I work as a freelance Japanese to English translator and also do interpreting (consecutive and simultaneous) for both Japanese to English and English to Japanese. I also have in-house experience working as a translator and interpreter at Square Enix and Honda R&D Americas.
