Full time free-lance translator exclusively with major international (big 4) and second-tier public accounting firms, as well as banks, stock brokerage firms, consulting firms, etc., as well as the US Embassy in Mexico City and Bogota, Colombia with 29 years of experience, specializing financial statements (corporations, banks, stock brokerage firms, etc.), management letters, tax inquiries & analysis, transfer pricing studies, legal documents such as contracts, articles of incorporation, bylaws, Sarbanes-Oxley Internal Control Projects, etc., and large money laundering prevention projects through the US embassy in Mexico and Colombia, and the Treasury Department.

After several years of ongoing research, I have compiled a Spanish-English & English-Spanish glossary of more than 6,000 specialized terms in accounting, tax, and finance, drawn mostly from sources such as the AICPA and the IMCP. The majority of these terms cannot be found in other sources. It is been copyrighted in the US and was published in Mexico by the Instituto Mexicano de Contadores públicos, A. C in February 2013. The title is "Diccionario de Terminología Contable y Financiera Especializada".

Prior to translation, I taught ESL/EFL for nearly 30 years, highlighted by teaching assignments at the Centro de Capacitacion Linguistica, S.A., Instituto Mexicano Norteamericano de Relaciones Culturales, A.C., Instituto de Lenguas Modernas, S.A., Instituto Politécnico Nacional (Centro de Enseñanza de Lenguas Extranjeras or CENLEX – Zacatenco & Escuela Superior de Turismo), Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (Centro de Enseñanza de Lenguas Extranjeras or CELE). I was also a Mexico City based Educational Consultant with Litton Educational Publishing International of New York and covered Mexico and Central America.

Resident of Mexico City since February 1966. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Calif.
