I am a native Californian who has lived and worked extensively in Italy and Brazil. I have been in the fashion world for 10 years working as a designer and now as a personal stylist and shopper. I have translated for many years but in the past three have begun doing it professionally. I have an advanced certificate in translation from Portuguese into English, from the University of Chicago, Graham School of General Studies.
I am a lover of life, culture and language. I am an avid reader and enjoy keeping up to date on current events in all three countries. I currently split my time between Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the San Francisco Bay Area.
