I am a published bilingual writer and translator, specializing in English and Romanian languages. My own work involves short story, novella, verse, novel, screenplay, and scholarly papers. Translations include Romanian literature, and English stylization of various translations.
I hold a Ph.D. in English and teach a variety of courses at Oakland University in Modern Literature, Bible as Literature, Screenwriting, Translation and Adaption, World Literature, and Fiction. I received the Excellence in Teaching Award from Oakland University in 2012.
As a creative artist I work in several mediums, including sculpture, iconography, folk art, and painting. I offer original items for sale, but also accept commissions for a variety of projects.
Additional areas of expertise include music and Romanian folk dance. I am a composer and choreographer, and founder of Țărăncuța Romanian Folk Dance and Music Ensemble.
