CV/Resume English (DOC)
I hold my PhD from The Ohio State University in Linguistics (Slavic). I have worked with Brill for the past 5 years on numerous projects, mostly historico-theological in nature (e.g. Brill's Companion to the Christian Tradition). In all, I have copy edited over 50 books of 500+ pages (the largest one around 900 pages). In addition, I have extensive translation experience (over 10 years, working from mostly French-English, Spanish-English and Slavic languages to English -- but primarily Russian and the former Serbo-Croatian). I am always happy to take on any projects spanning a wide range of academic topics. In addition, I am also a capable literary translator and editor. I've included a link to my profile here for your reference (and links to my published papers and book):

I look forward to future collaborations!
Keywords: I can translate most Slavic languages into English, although my specialties are Russian, Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian, and French.
