A BIT ABOUT ME
I am a Uruguayan-Canadian multilingual communication specialist. For the past 14 years, I’ve been offering independent English and Spanish language services. When the project requires it, I work with a pool of professionals to provide you with the best possible services.
Curious about my background?
In Montevideo, Uruguay, I attended an international language immersion school (German-English-Spanish) and participated in competitive exchange programs to live and study in Italy with AFS and Intercultura, and in Germany as winner of the Humboldt Contest to best written research work.
Thanks to a Fulbright Scholarship, I moved to the United States to pursue a M.A. degree in Communication at Michigan State University, where I specialized in media, gender and cross-cultural communication.
After relocating to Vancouver, Canada, I earned a Ph.D. in Language and Literacy Education at the University of British Columbia. There, I collaborated to bring Open Journal Systems to Latin America. As part of my contribution to this effort, my dissertation focused on open source programs for academic publishing and higher education at an international level.
In addition to living in Europe, North and South America, my experiences living and working in Asia (Malaysia) and Africa (Mozambique) helped me hone my other languages and cross-cultural communication skills.
To better help my clients, I strive to constantly upgrade my skills by getting certified, joining professional associations (Editors Canada, Spanish Editors Association, Society of Translators and Interpreters of BC), and studying, including a one-year writing and publishing program at Simon Fraser University.
A BIT ABOUT MY WORK
I am passionate about everything that has to do with cultures, words, and languages.
The Story Behind the Logo. The initial logo showed the earth superimposed over a sun—a play on the my name, which is derived from the Latin words for light and earth. The logo has evolved to include people around the world to reflect an increased involvement in community development projects and a global focus on sustainability.
Best Business Practices. I care about the world we live in and make every effort to make it a better place for everyone. I do so by limiting our use of paper products and energy, choosing non-contaminating means of transport whenever possible and reducing commuting time by favouring home-based businesses.
Confidentiality. Any information you submit will remain strictly confidential. I will not distribute, disseminate, sell, or disclose any information communicated in the documents you submit to us.
