I am passionate about the effective use of language and cultural understanding in all aspects of life.

I am extremely excited and honored to be back at MIIS as an instructor. My two years here were some of the most stimulating and challenging as a student, and I am happy to be able to now contribute to the learning process of more future interpreters and translators.

I have worked as an in-house interpreter and translator for the last two years at a semiconductor company in Silicon Valley. Though I would never call myself an expert, tech is the area in which I currently have the most experience.
