Bio

English

I was
born in São Paulo - Brazil and Portuguese is my native language. I was educated
in a school of Canadian nuns and I early got the interest for different
cultures and languages: English and French at first, and Italian some years
later. I also studied German and Spanish and started to study Russian. My
parents were both lawyers and I graduated in Economics and in Law, both at
University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil.

I worked in a Dutch Bank and for the State
Government in São Paulo.  Then I worked
with import/ export  from Italy and
Denmark, of food and drink, mainly wines, and I got to know a lot about restaurants,
shops and supermarkets, as well as about marketing and market research.  Besides I increased my knowledge about cooking
and culinary.

I lived in Canada (Ottawa) where I worked for
the Canadian Government.

I had the chance to go to many countries in America,
Europe, and Africa, working or studying or just on tourism.  I´ve also travelled to all regions in Brazil.

I´ve always been in contact with foreign
languages, either translating ( in both ways) or interpreting or teaching and
now I work as a full-time translator.

I like to read. Literature, esoteric subjects,
environment, nature, animals and ecology are my favorite themes.

I also appreciate music and some sports.

 

Português

Eu nasci em São Paulo - Brasil e
português é minha língua nativa. Fui educada numa escola de freiras canadenses
e cedo tive interesse por diferentes culturas e línguas: inglês e francês
primeiramente, e italiano alguns anos mais tarde. Eu também estudei alemão e
espanhol e comecei a estudar russo. Meus pais eram ambos advogados e eu me
formei em Economia e em Direito, ambos na Universidade de São Paulo (USP),
Brasil.

Trabalhei num Banco holandês e
para o governo do Estado em São Paulo. 
Então trabalhei com importação/exportação da Itália e Dinamarca, de
alimentos e bebidas, principalmente vinhos, e aprendi muito sobre restaurantes,
lojas e supermercados, bem como sobre marketing e pesquisa de mercado, além de
expandir meu conhecimento sobre culinária.

Morei no Canadá (Ottawa) onde trabalhei
para o Governo Canadense.

Tive a oportunidade de ir a muitos
países na América, Europa e África, a trabalho, estudo ou somente a
turismo.  Também viajei para todas as
regiões do Brasil.

Sempre estive em contato com línguas
estrangeiras, tanto traduzindo ( nos dois sentidos) como interpretando ou
lecionando.  Atualmente trabalho como
tradutora em tempo integral.

Gosto de ler. Literatura,
assuntos esotéricos, meio ambiente, natureza, animais e ecologia, são meus
temas favoritos.

Também aprecio música e alguns
esportes.
