Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and raised in London, England. After finishing my studies in English Language and English Literature, I moved back to Buenos Aires and started teaching.

Translating emerged naturally after I was hired as the youngest executive secretary in Grey, for the Media Director. All departments would ask me to translate texts, slogans, videos, memos, letters, presentations both to and from Spanish, English and Portuguese.
After quitting my job at Grey to settle down and raise a family, I took up translating at home and soon had quite a few clients, including other advertising agencies, law firms and executives of all areas.

I taught English for 16 years privately and for many schools in Argentina and Brazil, and have been translating for almost 24 years.

I currently live in Bahia, Brazil and work in my home-office as a freelance translator in my language pairs and coordinator of a group of translators in another 6 languages for companies such as Telecom, Telefonica, Nokia, Vivo, CTBC, Embratel and many other Telecommunications companies. I also work for translation agencies in Israel, USA, Portugal, Argentina, China, England and here in Brazil, and have many private clients, including universities (mostly zoology and environment articles) and executives all around the world. I also created a course for university students studying for their master´s degrees to help them interpret and write summaries to scientific articles.

I have worked in almost all areas but feel more comfortable with telecommunications, zoology, environment, marine science, biology, some technical areas, literature and most human sciences.
