&: I can help you

Writing, translation, editing, research, or miscellaneous, I can take care of it.

I've done the technical writing, travel writing, written promotional copy for a Japanese fireworks festival, and even published poetry; translations from Chinese have ranged from novels to localization work for software companies; I have edited fiction, graphic novels, and academic papers; and I've done research for publishers, advertising agencies, and government.

Need a book report, a second look at a manuscript, or a final edit? That's perfect.

I translate from Chinese to English.

I'm based in Tokyo, but I'm in Beijing at least a few times a year.

Rates are available upon request. I'm willing to offer steeply discounted rates for any projects I find politically, socially or artistically appealing.

References are also available upon request. You can find a list of my published work here.

I can churn out copy on and translate nearly anything, but my areas of reasonable expertise are: contemporary Chinese literature, diaspora literature, Taiwanese literature, modern Chinese history, Chinese online culture, web politics (right-wing populism, New Maoism, Left Maoism), the Chinese New Left, labor politics, East Asian politics, urbanism, fashion, Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, and Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.
