Originally from Monterey, California, I’ve spent 15 years at a small university teaching literature and writing. Although I grew up in a Russian speaking family and am certified as a translator of Russian to English, my Ph.D is in English. My bilingual upbringing deepened my understanding of language, and expanded my ability as a writer.

Selected published works: Co-translator and editor of four contemporary novels published by Glagoslav Ltd.; articles for a U.S. Embassy publication; Forms in Early Modern Utopia: The Ethnography of Perfection published by Ashgate; an essay in Printed Voices, a collection published by University of Toronto Press and blog posts for The Extraordinary Businesswoman.

Writing is my passion. Let me put my expertise to work for you by contacting me here.
