Bio

I am a translator and interpreter with many of years of experience and a unique cultural sensitivity, having grown up bilingual in English and Spanish and traveling extensively. For 10 years I lived in Egypt and Jordan as a musician, teacher and translator, visited other countries in the region and developed a deep familiarity and connection with local and language and culture. I hold a Master of Arts in Arabic and Islamic Studies from Georgetown University, where I studied contemporary Arabic poetry. This has led me to specialize in literary translation from Arabic to English, although I enjoy translating in other fields.

I also have extensive experience in tourism and hospitality, and am available for interpretation and guided tours of Madrid and around Spain, speaking English, Arabic, and Spanish.

Likewise I am will be happy to plan for you a special tour of Egypt, where we may visit any and every part of the country you wish, with a special focus on music and arts, and the chance to experience local cultural events never offered in the typical tours offered by larger companies.

I invite you to contact me to discuss what an unforgettable trip to Egypt could look like.
