I work out of Seattle, WA, at the speedily evolving intersections of text and tech, applying my knowledge of cultural linguistics and coding to help integrate foreign language applications with social media localisation.
I also am an independent scholar, researching and publishing on gender and psychoanalysis, as well as a professional interpreter/translator, primarily for Japanese (JLPT 1). I also speak Welsh (with a lot of help!), and am a passionate supporter of minority language rights. I am a member of Plaid Cymru; People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA); and the Roman Catholic Church, with a particular devotion to Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
My first book, Ancestral Recall: The Celtic Revival and Japanese Modernism, was published by McGill-Queen’s University Press (2016). My academic publications are compiled here.
Hefyd, rydw i’n ysgrifennu nofel gwïar am ddod allan am y tro cyntaf fel menyw drawsrywiol drwy bŵer y Gymraeg fel ail-iaith.
Come for the folklore; stay for the abuse. Would name you my favorite authors but they’d be embarrassed if this page turned up in one of their google #namesearches. Apologies for the typos: I’ve lost most of my eyesight, but I get by on my trans Sybill Trelawney-like vibe. Her and Moaning Myrtle are my favorite Harry Potter characters. You can find me on dark twitter if you know where to look.

Welsh nationalism is not a nativism based on where someone happened to be born.
@Plaid_Cymru has a radical, accepting & outward-looking spirit. Open & inclusive, whoever you are, whatever background, if you want to build a better Wales, we welcome you.
