University of Connecticut Interpreting Services (UCIS)
Nathan is an ASL-English Interpreter who is nationally certified (ASL-English) by the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID). In 2007, he graduated from Northeastern University in Boston, MA with a Bachelor of Science in Linguistics and ASL-English interpreting. He has been credentialed since 2007, beginning with the Massachusetts State Screening, and was subsequently certified on a national level by RID, first in 2009 (NIC), and then additionally in 2011 (NIC-Advanced). In 2009, Nathan began studying the Integrated Model of Interpreting (IMI), which has helped him understand the nature of interpreting in the mind as a suite of cognitive processes. He uses the IMI as a framework for reflecting upon and understanding his own work, and as a tool for discussing work with others. Since 2010, Nathan has been an active member of the Etna Project, a yearly retreat-style professional development series based on the IMI and facilitated by Betty Colonomos. Nathan has also been an active member of the National Professional Organization of Interpreters, the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf: serving on the Professional Development Committee, and on planning committees for national and regional conferences. Nathan also participates in his local affiliate chapter, the Massachusetts Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf in similar roles. He lives in Massachusetts, where he practices yoga and meditation, and goes line dancing.
