I am a translator, editor, and language coach in Cologne, Germany.

English is my mother tongue, and I’ve acquired the various German skills—speaking, reading, writing, complaining about train delays—over the years through classroom, work, and life experience.

I translate German to English. I offer a full range of editorial services. My background has provided ample opportunity and lots of experience working with writers whose first language is not English.

My English is American by birth, but international by choice. I am handy with a style guide, ruthless with apostrophes, and agnostic about the Oxford comma. Consistency is queen.
