I don't have a favourite genre, but the authors I enjoyed to read the most were Kafka, Aldous Huxley, Zola, Cormac McCarthy, Murakami, Tolstoy, Tcheckov, Ali Smith, Virginia Woolf, Jeanette Winterson, Selim Özdogan, among others. I am not a fan of fantasy. I love reading comics like the ones from Jiro Taniguchi, Quino or Bill Watterson. So far I have translated short stories and Theatre Plays in Seminars at the University and two books of Özdogan for my recreation.

As a Classicist, translating literature is one of my biggest pleasures. Unfortunately, one of the hardest to come by, outside the academic world or the pro bono challenges of cultural associations. As a specialist in Ancient Greek tragedy, I have found that translating for modern theatre is equally fascinating. As a comics addict, I would be more than happy to venture in the field of translating speech balloons!

I am currently doing a translation of "Os da minha rua" by the Angolan author Ondjaki for my MA thesis at Wake Forest University. In order to preserve the Angolan flavor of the work while still providing a translation that is just as witty and idiomatic as Ondjaki's original, I am utilizing a new translation methodology that treats cultural elements differently than idiomatic or stylistic elements.
