Bio
My family immigrated from Portugal to South Africa in 1981. I was 8. I was kept back a year in school because of the language gap, but made up for it in a month and was transferred to an advanced class, so I suppose I had a knack for it! I went on t graduate from high school with distinction and was accepted at the University of Cape Town where I enrolled in the microbiology programme. This path was sadly cut short when, in 1991, my parents decided to return to our homeland.

It seemed logical that upon my return to Portugal I should use my precious linguistic resource to further myself...so I took a degree in Accounting, logically...My career in finance made a quick ascension and I soon found myself embarking on an epic international adventure. It's been quite a journey and, while my career choices have helped me to fulfill my immediate needs, they didn't fulfill my ideals.

Needless to say, my life choices have taken me in different directions, but translation has always been with me. From translating simple texts for school colleagues to taking on larger projects with actual monetary compensation, I decided it was time I follow my heart. So, I launched myself into the unknown, abandoning the comfort of a steady income for an exciting and challenging life translating.
