I was born in Austin, Texas, and am a US/German dual national. I have lived in Germany and Sweden for several years respectively, am the holder of a Ph.D. in German from the University of California at Berkeley, and have been based in Copenhagen since 2004. I am the translator of twenty-three published books representing fiction and nonfiction and the source languages Danish, German, and Swedish; I have translated from Danish for publication by Gads Forlag and from German and Swedish for publication by Amazon Crossing. I am a contributor to the peer-reviewed University of Florida Press journal Delos; my most recent piece in that journal is my article "Ethiopian Orthodox Churches," which appeared in the Fall 2022 issue. My work has appeared in Asymptote Journal, B O D Y, Border Crossing, Columbia Journal, Exchanges, K1N, Mayday Magazine, Newfound, Pusteblume, Storm Cellar, The Brooklyn Rail, The Cossack Review, The Literary Review, The Missing Slate, and Wilderness House Literary Review. I have extensive experience teaching at the university and upper secondary levels.

My most recently published book translation is my translation of Professor Kurt Jacobsen's history of the pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk, which was published by Gads Forlag on 14 March 2023.

I translated the texts for the Workers Museum's exhibition Women's Lives, which runs through 1 August 2025 and will be accompanied by an extensive program of special events.
