About Me

I am a professional linguist.

I enjoy learning, teaching, and researching. I love creating, optimising, and writing. I am good at speaking, solving problems, and prioritising. My colleagues praise me for being active, efficient, and determined.

I have worked for four years in several European countries as a linguist, and I have even accomplished my greatest childhood dream: working as a translator at Nintendo (for over two years!). I have learnt a lot during my time abroad, and I am always eager to share my experience with the right people.

I now aim at fulfilling some of my adulthood dreams, too: discovering new passions, learning disparate skills, finding an amazing job, and creating a business.

My latest adventure is Inglés Para Exigentes, a course where I focus on helping Spaniards become bilingual (for free). If you speak Spanish, I invite you to subscribe and start learning in a better way.

Here are my previous jobs and published projects.

I would love to hear from you.
