Interpreter, translator, teacher

ABOUT ME

 
The
Backstory

Born in Buenos Aires from an Italian family, I lived in Argentina for ten years and then moved to Italy, where I have lived since 2001. Apart from studying English, French and German from a very young age, I carried out part of my studies in the UK, Belgium and Germany.  My passion for linguistics and foreign cultures led me to choose my current carreer: facilitating communication among people who do not share the same language. Over the years, I have worked as a freelance simultaneous and consecutive interpreter, translator and teacher of English, Spanish and Italian. Since 2014 I have participated in the management of Creating Connections (Language courses, Interpreting and Translation), where, among other things,  I had the opportunity to develop my other big passion – illustration – through the creation of learning material for young learners.
