I am passionate about all elements of storytelling, from brainstorming ideas and plots to deciding on the right words to express them. For more than a decade, I have worked as a translator from French and German into English, often working closely with authors to make sure their ideas come across as fluently and flawlessly as possible.
I especially like projects that have a historical scope and diving right into some chapter of the past, though it's also thrilling to speculate about the future, and it's been really fun to translate several installments of a science fiction series.
