Me fascinan los idiomas... talvez porque crecí hablando varios (cantonés en la casa, inglés en la escuela y español en con los amiguitos del vecindario y en la escuela.

A la edad de 30 años tuve la oportunidad de trabajar siete años en Japón, donde aprendí a escribir, leer y a hablar japonés (fue hace tanto tiempo que ya no lo domino tanto). Fue ahí donde empecé mi vida de traductor del Inglés al Español.

Luego en los EE. UU. estuve un par de años interpretando los sermones dominicales del Inglés al Español y ahora estoy trabajando como traductor e intérprete en el bufete del Defensor Público en Durham, NC.

Languages are my fascination... maybe because I was speaking several as I was growing up (Cantonese at home, English in school, and Spanish with my neighborhood friends, and at school).

When I was 30 I worked in Japan for seven years, where I learned to write, read and speak Japanese (that was a long time ago, so I´m not that fluent anymore). It was in Japan that I started my life as an English to Spanish Translator.

Later on, in the US, I interpreted our church services from English to Spanish and I'm now working as a translator/interpreter for the Public Defender office in Durham,NC.
