Background

I grew up in the states in Michigan and began my Japanese studies during my freshman year of high school. Upon graduation, I enrolled at the University of Michigan to study history with a minor in Japanese. After doing a summer internship in Nara, I decided to return to Japan to study abroad at Kyushu University as part of the Japan in Today's World program (JTW) whilst receiving a JASSO scholarship. 

I began translating freelance my final year in university and continue to this day. I have vast experience in game localization though my time both translating freelancing as well as working at LINE on popular mobile games and at my current position at ORENDA Inc. on hit indie games. I also have experience in the field of IT and tourism.
