I'm a Canadian-American freelance translator working primarily with translation of contemporary Brazilian literary fiction and creative non-fiction. I have translated work by several award-winning Portuguese-language authors including Veronica Stigger, Rodrigo de Souza Leão, Alexandra Lucas Coelho, João Ximenes Braga, Paulo Coelho, Gonçalo M. Tavares, Lourenço Mutarelli, Mia Couto and Sérgio Rodrigues. I also blog about untranslated Portuguese-language books at Gringa Reads.

Born and raised in the foothills of southeastern Kentucky, I've spent the last ten years living and working in the UK, France, Portugal, Spain, Brazil and Russia. I now call East London home, where I reside with my Brazilian husband.
