I was born in Portugal, lived in Angola for about 7 years, and have now been living in South Africa for over 30 years.

I worked in the scientific field for 22 years as an Analytical Chemist and manager and started doing translation work about ten years ago. In addition to my home languages (Portuguese, English, Afrikaans) I also do some work in French, Italian, and Spanish. I have also worked as a political analyst of Lusophone countries in Africa, among others, and taught Portuguese and Afrikaans.
