About me
Born in New York City to a bi-lingual family, I have always been a native English-Spanish speaker- having spoken both languages at home all my life. I grew up in South Florida, where I later became a Zoning Administrator in the tiny, but very lovely City of Coral Gables ("The City Beautiful") during the mid-eighties.
Having initially studied architecture and construction technology at New York City College and Miami-Dade College; I also attended The School of Government at FIU north, and later majored in Architectural Technology at Florida International University (south campus), after a brief stint in the US Navy.
Toward the end of the Eighties, I was offered a position in the editorial department of 'Selecciones de Reader's Digest' (that produces the various Latin American editions of Reader's Digest Magazine) in Mexico City as a language and PC computer instructor for the editors, including the Magazine Editor at that time, Mr. Audon Corria. Reader's Digest had just developed the "net" (net.com) ...a pre-cursor to what we know today as the internet, and we felt very privileged to have access to the new "information highway".
From this initial venture, I was also invited to be one of the in-house translators for the RD editorial staff, and participated in translating materials published in the magazine. Shortly thereafter, I formed a company offering executive consulting services, language instruction and professional translating services, located in Mexico City. We worked with a small, young, yet very experienced and extremely dynamic team of collaborators, attending the needs of executives and professionals in several important firms, including Los Pinos (the Mexican equivalent of "the White House"), Mexican state governors and administrative staffs, banks, Ford Motor Company, Reader's Digest, Levi's de Mexico and a few others select clients.
Due to my background in architecture and construction (my family owned a small construction firm in Florida); I was eventually invited to participate in some interesting projects in different parts of Mexico, which brought me into contact with some important personalities, including some of the country's top designers, important investors and a couple of Mexican presidents.
From these contacts, I became involved in interpreting during the negotiation as well as translating construction contracts for several major firms involved in large investments in Mexico's Tourism sector, as well as translating documents to set up bank trusts (Fidecomisos), and many other such documents for contractors, architects, and (foreign) property owners, especially those interested in Mexican beachfront property investments.
My association with lawyers, notaries and clients has also afforded me the opportunity to lend my services as a Spanish to English (and vice-versa) interpreter for civil cases and depositions.
I also formed a business with a friend who is a builder/general contractor, and who's been involved in the construction industry in Acapulco for over 25 years, where I now reside with my wife.

In 2003, I suffered a leg injury while inspecting a church renovation project and was forced to retire from active (physical) participation in construction supervision, but was subsequently invited to join the architecture faculty at Loyola del Pacifico University in Acapulco and later worked for Harmon Hall SA de CV as an English teacher and eventually, a corporate supervisor over their schools in Mexico's northern region.

As of the Spring of 2003, I've been involved in freelance translation online: editing and proofreading from my home office in Acapulco. I have also worked with MP3 & Mp4 transcripts and translations since 2008. Some recent translations include:
