Bio

With a multidisciplinary academic background, which encompasses the Social Sciencies, Humanities, Arts and Communications, I am looking towards making a career in areas such as Publishing, Cultural Industries and Administration and Education. I am excellently suited for jobs requiring bilingual skills, centered the written word, in any medium, as well as creative endeavors which require team work.

I am a fast learner and I am eager to acquire new knowledges and skills. As it has been what my studies and work experience have demanded, I like functioning as a jack-of-all-trades of the soft skills. 

But in particular, my strongests suits are in editing and translating. The most appealing, challenging and yet enjoyable aspect about these is that they involve all activities related to the written word: Creating, composing, correcting, etc. I enjoy translating and editing regardless of the subject matter of the text at hand, and I find a great deal of satisfaction in pulishing a text into the best possible wording or translating it into its most precise target words.

I was raised in a bilingual household and exposed from an early age to multiple cultural inputs. In this regard, my best personal trait is my cultural and intellectual curiosity, which in turn feeds my disposition towards perfectionism. I approach translation and editing as ever-perfectible skills, in which you should never be content only with your previous experience and achievements, but instead these are activities that demand constant study and updating.

I also very much enjoy working in academic environments and in assisting people in their studies or personal searches with regards to books, texts and other media. For further references, please refer to the CV/Resumé available in this profile.
