About meI am a translator (from Slovene and Russian to English), originally from Baltimore, Maryland. My recent translations include Yevgeny Baratynsky, A Science Not for the Earth: Selected Poems and Letters (Ugly Duckling Presse), and Gabriela Babnik, Dry Season, Dušan Šarotar, Panorama, and Mojca Kumerdej, The Harvest of Chronos (all three from Istros Books). Other interests include contemporary art, classical Greece, Russian literature, European history, and Central and Eastern Europe.

Some favorite quotations:
It could be a good day; it needs to be treated carefully.
- Michael Cunningham, The Hours.

You will find no comfort here,
In the kingdom of bang and blab.
- Theodore Roethke, "The Lost Son: I. The Flight"

To know only one thing well is to have a barbaric mind: civilization implies the graceful relation of all varieties of experience to a central humane system of thought.
– Robert Graves, The White Goddess
