About me
I was born in Brussels, Belgium, in 1960, and shared my studies between Belgium and the U.S. I am married and the father of two, and, currently, I am residing in Barcelona, Spain.

In spite of the fact that I was unable to complete the two college study cycles I had undertaken, due to family and personal health problems, the knowledge acquired and expanded thanks to personally undertaken studies and varied life experiences, in different parts of the world, as well as in diverse social and cultural contexts, allowed me to strengthen certain areas of knowledge, through practical experience and specialization in mastering four languages, to teach them, create and write contents, perform proofreading, editing, post-editing and final revision tasks, as well as translations, in twelve language combinations.

Although my professional experience´s broad diversity might seem a bit unusual to most professionals who generally follow a more linear trajectory, there is coherence in the set of activities undertaken and performed during thirty-five years of active professional life, showing that it requires much more than a diploma, in order to become a good translator.

Indeed, it takes years of professional practice and a broad general culture based on prolonged stays in countries where the languages used in translation are being spoken, with full immersion in the local culture, way of life, habits, idiosyncrasy, etc., along with a deep and constant study and analysis of every aspect, layer and dimension of each one of these languages, which is a challenge for any professional, in the field.


FUTURE PLANS:

I want to share my cosmopolitan professional experience with open people of good will, on a local, national and international level, in human and commercial relations based on mutual respect and trust.

In parallel with my professional activities, I want to keep on writing novels, short stories, essays, poetry, articles and scripts, to share my life experience and knowledge with my family and a varied public, at least, in five languages, as I am currently starting to learn Catalan, and am about to move from Barcelona to Ibiza.

I also want to travel and get to know Australia, Indonesia, Polynesia, the Pacific Ocean´s islands and Senegal, among other places, to enjoy those experiences which are so important in a man´s life, as is having a child, planting a tree and writing a book.


SYNTHESIS:

Indeed, however strange it might seem, this trajectory is the reflection of my personal and professional development process, in a modern context, so that I might put this potential and acquired experience at the service of noble and elevated causes, in benefit of the greater majority, through a broad general culture based on live experience, and not just on studies and reading, which, in my opinion, is fundamental, in order to make a good translator.

Finally, nowadays, I am developing more quality in my professional activities, as well as in my personal, family and social life, in a positive and constructive manner, because I strongly believe that we are all here, in this world, to learn and evolve, through the constant experiencing of a wide variety of aspects of life.
