I am a translator and linguist in Boise, Idaho. My family has deep roots in Boise, originally settling here in 1886.
I've been working full-time as a Japanese-English translator since 2009 through my company Fry Translation Inc. I am also an adjunct faculty member at Boise State University, where I teach courses in Linguistics.
I earned a BA in Linguistics and Computer Science from UCLA, followed by a Ph.D. in Linguistics, with a minor in Computer Science, from Stanford University in 2002. After earning my Ph.D., I worked as a computational linguist in the San Francisco Bay Area (at PARC, SRI, and elsewhere) and taught courses in linguistics and language technology at San Jose State University. I also spent several years living in Japan, working at Koei (in Tokyo) and NAIST (in Tsukuba).
I don't participate in any social media or social networking sites. My translation work requires lots of time on the computer, so when I have free time I prefer to spend it doing something
real like cooking, hiking, or reading a book or newspaper. If you want to
friend me or
like me, you'll have to do it the old-fashioned way!
