About Michael Kayser

Michael Kayser once served as a English to Russian translator in the political section of the USSR division of the Voice of America. One performance evaluation read, in part, as follows: His mastery of the Russian language often exceeded that of his Russian-born colleagues. Mr. Kayser possesses an incredibly large vocabulary and a wonderful feel for the language and the ability to use it effectively and with style. During the 1990 s, Kayser handled a multitude of assignments as an English to Russian simultaneous contract interpreter for the U.S. Department of State. He lives in Canton, OH, with his wife, Marina, a native of St. Petersburg, Russia.
