Translator Interpreter

Source Language

Target Language

English, Japanese



I was raised in an English-speaking household in Japan until 17, and then went onto attend college in the US and obtained a Ph.D. in Japanese and Korean literatures and cultures from UC Berkeley. 

I write taglines and copy in English and Japanese and translate marketing materials, corporate, financial and legal documents. I also provide cultural and marketing consultation for American and Japanese companies looking to extend their reach beyond their current market.
