Everything I enjoy comes down to words, details, and helping others.
In my professional life, I'm a copyeditor, EFL tutor, and translator. I've worked on academic papers (dissertations, project proposals, and articles, primarily in the sciences), memoirs, religious commentary, and art criticism. My ESL students range in age from 5 to adult, and I've worked in Korean language academies and as a private tutor. My professional translation work to date has mostly been in the realm of business (customer feedback).
In my fun life, I co-organize a local writing Meetup, participate in two different critique groups, translate semi-obscure Swedish women writers into English, and make jewelry based on math and science. I also work on my own writing projects, which tend to be character-driven SF/F and literary novels. I'm a bit of a language nerd, too; I study Russian and Korean in my spare time, and try to keep up my high school German and college French. I also like to surprise people with postcards and tea and other fun things in the mail!
