Description

I have been translating since 2007 and interpreting since 2010, when I completed a MA in conference interpreting at the Institut de Traducteurs, d'Interprètes et Relations Internationales at the University of Strasbourg in France.

My regular clients today include the Organization of American States, Inter-American Development Bank, US Department of State, UN Food and Agriculture Organization, UN Economic Commission for Europe, TV5 Monde, US domestic courts, and the private sector. From 2016-2017 I worked for the UN Assistance to the Khmer Rouge Trials in Cambodia.

The bulk of my work has dealt with finance, law, development, and banking. I have also worked frequently with security, defense, and agriculture.
