I translate fiction, nonfiction, and children's literature from Finnish and German into English. I also write reader's reports and provide market expertise. I work with publishers, agents, and individual authors, as well as museums and cultural institutions.
I'm particularly passionate about championing international children's literature, and I'm proud to be part of the team at WorldKidLit where we write about and review children's books from around the world.
I hold a Ph.D. in Scandinavian Studies from the University of Washington, Seattle, with a focus on Finnish literature and cultural studies. I am a 2017 graduate of the Finnish to English literary translation mentorship porgram organized by FILI, the Finnish Literature Exchange, Finland's literary export agency.
