Bio
I have worked and studied in Russia a total of five years. I worked for a New York law firm doing business in Moscow; I helped a multinational clientele establish offices and develop its business in Russia. I also worked several years in Washington, D.C, where I grew up. I translate legal and business documents, including contracts, proposals, correspondence, legislation and legal scholarship, such as articles and opinions. I take pride in communicating meaning clearly, accurately and fairly.
