Hello, I'm Alex, a 31-year-old native Brazilian with a Bachelor's degree in Linguistics from the University of São Paulo.

Ever since childhood I've had a great interest in languages, and English has always been the one I was most exposed to, aside from my native Portuguese.

I picked up most of my English by myself, from watching American movies, listening to popular music and reading all sorts of things on the internet, from blog posts and user comments to news articles and even full books. Because of this organic approach (as opposed to going to actual language schools) I feel I have acquired a vast knowledge of not only the English language, but, most notably, of English-speaking culture, mainly American. With that background, in 2015 I was able to achieve a TOEFL score of 653, reaching the advanced level C1.

In 2008 I started working as a Portuguese tutor for foreigners in Brazil, which turned out to be a surprisingly enriching activity, to have personal contact with travelers from all around the world. I briefly taught English to Brazilians as well.

In the following years, while still teaching, I had the opportunity of engaging in other job experiences that involved my English knowledge, and one of them was as a translator. But it wasn't untill 2015 that I really began focusing on translation services over other types of work.

I've handled material from a range of fields, including IT, e-commerce, marketing and even pharmaceutical texts. Although I would have to admit that my true passion lies in literary works.
