About Me

I am a native Brazilian Portuguese speaker with a College Degree in English and Portuguese, as well as a Certificate in Marketing Studies. I am currently enrolled at NYU for the Certificate in Translation course. I have always been passionate about languages and literature and I have lived and studied in the UK, Spain, Italy and the US.

My professional life has been rich and full of interesting opportunities: I have worked with webdesign, marketing and advertising, political campaigns and cooking, art and events organization. For the past two years, I was lucky enough to be called in to serve as Secretary for International Relations for the Government of my home state in Brazil.

This diverse background brings with it a broad view of the world that adds a lot to my work as a translator – someone who deals with different people, circumstances and areas of expertise every day. Curiosity and passion for research are also inherent to a good translator.
