About me

Translating in between Russian, Hebrew and English. Generally I translate into free verse, although I sometimes attempt to maintain the rhyme scheme/meter of the original.

Comments and feedback on my work are greatly appreciated.

Finally, if any of my translations interest you and you would like to use them for your projects, please get in contact!
