Sample desctiption

Translation is a driver of the global economy, but poetry has its own reasons. When I am not translating into English, I enjoy using English to explore language, meaning, and change.

Note: While all of the other pictures on this site were taken in France or Québec, this picture was taken in my backyard several days after a snowstorm had passed. I had pulled a muscle in my back and this was the first time I was able to go outside. It had been a powdery snow that did not stick to the trees, but with the sun perfectly aligned behind this broken tree, its limbs glistened in the light. I am originally from Florida, so I still look forward to the few times it snows in Raleigh each winter. I had felt that I had missed so much while I was trapped indoors, only to find that something truly beautiful was waiting for me.
