I am a poet, translator, editor, and connector. I was born and raised in Venezuela and have lived in the US and Canada for 25 years.
As a child, I spent countless hours in my room reading, writing, and poring over bilingual dictionaries. This is still what I most like to do, and I am really good at it. Since 2000, I have worked as a freelance translator and editor, weaving my passion for language, and languages, into my work.
I thoroughly enjoy the process of deconstructing a text and putting it back together, whether it is in the same language (rewriting and copyediting) or between languages (translation and revision).
Translation is my passion, but my experience spans a wide range of projects in literary translation (fiction, poetry, non-fiction, memoir), revision, copyediting, project management, transcription, research, and language consulting for private, non-profit, and corporate clients.
Contact me if you think I can be of service.
