Half Egyptian, half Argentinean. Born and raised in Egypt, between the Mediterranean and the Red Sea. Passionate about languages, history, heritage, culture, and nature. I have been a translator since I started talking. I am a native speaker of both Spanish and Arabic. I master the English language. I have a very wide knowledge of Italian. I comprehend French and Portuguese. I studied Ancient Egyptian Language and Hieroglyphics. 

I have a B.A. in Tourism and Hotel Management and an M.A. in Heritage Management.

From 2007 and till June 2019 I held the position of Cultural Officer at the Spanish Embassy in Cairo, a long career during which I have gained a lot of knowledge and know‐how in the fields of cultural promotion and international cooperation for development.

During those 12 years, I have translated uncountable texts, articles, and reports between English, Spanish and Arabic. These texts were in the fields of culture, politics, economics as well as sports. I was also in charge of the official pages of the Spanish Embassy in Cairo, on facebook & twitter, through which I had to create, translate and post, as well as moderate discussions and online activity. This position has also given me the opportunity to meet great people that have positively influenced me and built inside me sensitivity towards artistic expression, as well as a passion for cultural production and promotion. 

I am a freediver since 2013, and a qualified instructor to teach the sport since 2017. This is my greatest passion!
