About me
2nd Place in ProZ's Fourth Translator's Contest, SPA>PORT, AUG-SEP 2007

First job was as data entry at a Japanese newspaper in my hometown of São Paulo, while taking classes in the Introduction to the Russian Language.

An employment upgrade, and at age 16 I went to work at the American Chamber of Commerce for Brazil.

From there, I felt right at home working at a series of advertising companies as a desktop publisher and coordinator for sales campaigns.

Took my Geminian thirst for diversity abroad, and moved to Cochabamba, Bolivia, living and working for three years as a translator for medical students.
On the road again - or rather in the air, I lived another three years in Buenos Aires, Argentina, working as a translator for a kennel member of the AKC, as well as a desktop publisher for an accounting company.

Once back in Brazil, I taught Spanish at FISK, while also working as a cargo agent in FOREX for Fiorde Logística Internacional, a representative of Geologistics, today, Agility.

A well established translator, interpreter and voice-over professional for over 10 years.

Translated press release and web content for the Brazilian web design company Zombie Studio, winner of 3 Silver and 2 Bronze Awards at Cannes Lions 2013.
Material available on the company website:

Proofread the e-book QAZAQIA, by former Russian Prime Minister Karim Massimov

Translated extensive training material for the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy, ILEA

Ongoing translations for CHC - Heli-One internal campaigns and communications.

Participated in the translation and proofreading of Nike London 2012 Olympics ad campaign, titled "Find Your Greatness", videos available on YouTube.com:


Translated the app description for "The Guitar Collection: George Harrison", for iTunes.

Participated in the proofreading of the title "I Remember My Circus" published in 2011, by author Tom S. Figueiredo, , available at Amazon:


If someone you know has recently bought a Singer sewing machine, you will hear my voice on the Portuguese version of the instructional DVD. I also translated user manuals for two models manufactured by Singer.

I am absolutely passionate about my work. Free Hit Counter
