About me
I am a classical percussionist doubling as a part-time freelance translator. Born and raised in Portugal, I have studied English for more than 8 years (starting at the age of 9) and hold a Cambridge ESOL Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE), corresponding to level C2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and having passed the respective exam with an A. I currently live and work in the Netherlands, constantly interacting with a large international community of musicians; this means that I have been immersed in an almost completely English-speaking environment for over 3 years.

I also hold a Bachelor's degree in Physics from the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto. During my time there, I translated physics-related material for secondary school teachers (English to Portuguese). This job was done for a project called "Casa das Ciências", supported by the Gulbenkian Foundation. You can find examples of this in my Portfolio.

My professional engagements have taken me to Spain a few times and have led me to share the stage with many Spanish musicians. I have always harnessed these opportunities to improve my knowledge of (Castilian) Spanish.
