Bio
I possess native fluency (and write outstanding prose) in English, German & Spanish. -- Certified as a Ger>Eng>Ger & Ger>Span>Ger translator by the Baden-Württemberg Education Ministry. -- Span./Eng. judicial interpreter certified by the Adm. Office of the US Courts (I obtained a 100% score in the oral exam). -- Economics graduate of the Free University of Berlin. Former college lecturer in economics (in NYC & Chiapas, Mexico). -- I speak fluent Arabic & am very knowledgeable about Islam & the Middle East, where I have traveled extensively. -- I am so well informed on numerous subjects that I am frequently denounced as a walking encyclopedia. -- I have the deplorable habit of cursing in 4 or 5 languages, and I've dreamt in 8. Notable quote: I LANGUISH IN ANGUISH OF THE SPANGLISH LANGUAGE. -- Having lived in 6 Spanish-speaking countries plus Spanish Harlem & Little Havana, I am a noted authority on the lexical variations of Spanish among the 21 countries where it is spoken. NOTE: Despite rumors to the contrary, I am not the author of the infamous "World History of Fruitless Attempts to Incinerate Bedroom Slippers" (7 vols., The Bronx 2002-2006).
