Professional practices Philip Trommel endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I was born in Amsterdam and moved to Rochester, NY, USA, when I was three. At home we always spoke Dutch. I started to learn English when I started public school. My parents were "Francophiles" and my Mom, a teacher, started teaching me French when I was about 4, and we spent most summers in France. Languages were always something I was interested in and continued to explore.  In high I studied Spanish and Latin for 4 years. I did a study abroad in Perpignan, in the Southeastern corner of France, with a host family who were both teachers, and who spoke Catalan at home. Of course I wanted to learn it, and did. I continued to study it in later years. In college, at Duke, I took Italian and Portuguese, and did a study abroad in Rio de Janeiro. I later enrolled in an International MBA program at the University of South Carolina where I did a year-long internship in Lisbon, Portugal.

Outside of translation, I am a Realtor after working in Advertising at FedEx for 17 years, and also in several management positions including at Embraco, a Brazilian company's US offices, where I used Portuguese on a daily basis. Outside work, I love to cook, I am an artist and architectural model builder, and play guitar, bass and drums.
