Native English speaker with MA in English Literature and Language (Diplom-Anglist), BA English/German Literature (University of California) and graduate Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

I was born in Alaska (my German ancestor got off the boat in New Orleans in 1848) and attended primary and secondary school in Alaska, Colorado, London, Aachen/Germany (four years) and California. Work experience: Mexican and U.S. university English instructor (EFL, English composition) and five years as a German Gymnasium English (EFL) teacher. In 1997, I retired from a US civil service career as a teacher and education specialist with the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the US Army. In Alabama, I worked as a course developer and program manager for environmental training programs for the Army Corps of Engineers. As a Ft Sill Artillery School instructor trainer I taught methods of instruction to Army officers and NCOs (Oklahoma). As Chief of the Contract Training Division for the US Army in Europe, I served for 7 years as contracting officer's representative and training administrator of programs for soldiers throughout Europe. My work as COR included writing requests for contract proposals and administering contracts. I lived and worked in Germany for twenty years and visit Germany and the US once a year.

My second passion is fine woodworking. When not translating, I build furniture and cigar humidors.
