Bio
I became interested in Portuguese while completing my undergraduate studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I majored in Language Studies/Linguistics with an emphasis in Brazilian Portuguese and received my Bachelor's degree after completing a year-long exchange program at Pontifícia Universidade Católica (PUC) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

After graduating, I moved back to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where I worked as an in-house translator for a travel and tourism company. I was the head translator responsible for translating the company's website, emails, newsletters and brochures. I have been working consistently as a professional freelance translator since 2009 and currently live in my home town in Southern California.

During my time studying in Santa Cruz and Rio de Janeiro, I took a special interest in the area of Environmental Sciences and Sustainability, and took many classes focused on sustainable living, the future of the rain forests and the Amazon, conservation, resource management, renewable energy, etc. This is the area in which I am most confident and capable of providing a high-quality product. As this topic of study is ever-changing, I am continuously taking classes, attending lectures and acquiring new reading material in order to stay up-to-date with the most current progressions.

In my journey towards specialization in Environmental Sciences, I have had the joy of working on many other translations that fall under a variety of fields, including: business contracts, lease agreements and real estate contracts, certificates, diplomas, transcripts, technical manuals, tourism brochures, marketing campaigns & promotional material, customer review surveys, website content, claims reports, financial reports & bank statements, magazine articles, articles of association, board resolutions, beverage manufacturing regulations, Engineering and Audit Reports, liability insurance policy, confidentiality agreements, food safety reports, and an online stock trading platform, among others.

I am always interested in working with new clients and companies, and am very flexible with working hours/days and deadlines.
