Nagoya-based writer and translator working on climate change, Japanese art and literature, science, and social issues. I also run professional content and white paper writing services for law, technology, science, and higher-ed. I'm proud to present a limited selection of my writing portfolio.
These are just a few of my recent articles on Japanese culture and society. I've written for the New York Times, Vox, Slate, the Japan Times, the New Republic, Foreign Policy, Culture Trip, Metropolis Magazine, the Jewish Forward, and The Times of Israel. I've translated light novels and autobiographies for One Peace Books and Seven Seas. And I've developed content strategies for NewsRx, an AI journalism company, Voyagin, a Japanese travel platform, Fulford Enterprises, and Futpong, a backyard soccer-tennis game. Feel free to reach out and I can provide you with a more tailored selection of samples.
