I was born in Rome (Italy) and currently live in Berlin (Germany). As I've always been enjoying getting in touch with foreign cultures, I've spent a great part of my life travelling. Having lived in London UK, in Toronto CA, Dublin IR and Mexico City MX and being succefully graduated in "languages and modern cultures" at L.U.M.S.A. University in Rome, I've gained an appreciable command of the German, English, Spanish and Russian languages, which I have been improving during and after my studies.

During my education time, I had the chance to learn about a wide range of subjects such as technology, law, politics, literature and linguistics, which have been supporting my whole professional life.

I consider myself being a as reliable as outgoing person, who enjoys improving and enlarging his language skills anytime. Therefore, I believe that the core of a great translation is a constant and dynamic work between the customer and the translator.

What I offer is an exceptional translation service in my mother language on a wide range of text types.
