Work (Updated August 13, 2019)

As a Japanese-to-English translator and an editor, I've worked on video games across numerous genres, printed books, interviews, albums, and manga. Regardless of the medium, I'm dedicated to producing work that renders the source material into fun, fluid, and natural English text. 

I also have a passionate interest in the art, history, and academic study of video game music. I am happy to consult and provide translation services for projects centering on game audio history, preservation and appreciation, and more. Feel free to send me an inquiry at any time!
