About me

I am a writer, copywriter, and translator crisscrossing both languages and cultures (E/J & J/E). For over 29 years in Tokyo, I have covered the gamut of possibilities in this mixed language, mixed culture profession: writer, editor, translator, interpreter and conveyor of nuanced thoughts, intentions and ideas.
My background in editing work has involved humanitarian aid project reports and design and art-related articles; hundreds of articles incorporating my work have appeared in bilingual magazines not just in Japan but throughout the world. I would be happy to provide you with a quote for your current project.
