I’m Kieran, and this is my home on the web. I love learning languages and helping others achieve their language goals. I think learning a language is something anyone can do with the right attitude, tools, and encouragement.
I do freelance writing, editing, proofreading, and translation of Japanese and Chinese. I am fluent in Chinese and Japanese and passionate about intercultural exchange and communication in East Asia, especially literature, media, and translation. I studied Chinese literature at Fudan University in Shanghai, and I have a Bachelor of Arts in linguistics and East Asian literature from the Honors College at the University of Georgia. I also spent a year as an exchange student at Kyushu University in Japan.
On KieranMaynard.com you will find my writing, editing, proofreading, and translation services, and my blog, where I write about budget travel, cultural things, and learning languages. You can also check out my resume.
