About me
I was born in Paris, France to a French mother and an American father and lived in France and Saudi Arabia before coming to the United States when I was six years old. My mother did not speak English and we spoke only French at home while I learned English in school resulting in my being native in both languages. I started learning Spanish in school at the age of twelve mastering fluency in the language during a study abroad program at the University of Salamanca in Spain, later graduating with a BA in Spanish from the State University of New York College at Oswego in 1982. Soon after graduation I was hired by Trans World Airlines and engaged in a 27 year long career with the airlines, now working as an airport supervisor for American Airlines in Salt Lake City. During this time I was regularly called upon by immigration at JFK airport in New York to interpret French and Spanish for incoming passengers and I also assisted them in properly completing their immigration paperwork to enter the country. During all the years working with the airlines I have consistently assisted the airports and our passengers with interpretation of French and Spanish.

With my three passions in life being languages, travel, and sports I have traveled extensively and have interacted with people on a global level from a very young age. At present I am
further developing my career in translation and interpreting into a full time endeavor. My experience with languages cannot be measured in any specific block of time, although it can be
measured through my life experience having always been a part of who I am and what I have always done.

I am a national of both France and the United States of America.
