Bio
I was born in Argentina within a multicultural family (2 Italian grandparents, 1 Spanish and 1 French), and to anybody that knows his history, this is not impressive, it's just reality for most Argentines; however, my family also added to the mix moving to the United States while I was still a young child. I believe this is the root to my passion and curiosity towards different languages, cultures, countries and my need to successfully move the "soul" of a word or phrase from one language to another...
Years later we moved back, I went to Law School and in my second year started working as a Student Assistant -which triggered another passion: teaching- and simultaneously for a multidisciplinary firm (lawyers and accountants under one roof... interesting to say the least!) that needed a bilingual paralegal, as they had international clientele and English was always the 'lingua franca'.
Eventually I made partner at said firm and successfully conducted business in both Spanish and English, translated contracts, bylaws, articles of incorporation, certificates, other commercial documents and acted as an interpreter in numerous negotiations and meetings.
In 2009 I married the love of my life, an 'all-american boy', combat veteran, USAF officer, pilot, lawyer, my best friend and my inspiration... Together we started a Multijurisdictional Practice with offices in the US and abroad. We have had clients and associates from all over the globe.
Translating has always been entwined with my path in life, love and work; however, it is recently that I have decided to make it my formal career because I wholeheartedly enjoy it.
I am a complete nerd, that loves reading, learning something new every day, doing research, taking on a job and making the best version of it, and translating just checks all of those boxes and more.
