I am a translator and interpreter based in Mexico. My working languages are Spanish, English and Japanese.

I have always been passionate about language, loving both writing and literature. However, being always curious and eager to understand fundamental truths, I took a small detour in university and studied science, graduating from an Engineering degree in Neuroscience. This has helped me see in a new light the topics that have always fascinated me, especially literature, history and anthropology.

Since 2016, I have been working as an interpreter/translator and also pursuing a career as an illustrator. I run a small printing studio since 2020, where I get to work with printed matter in all its stages.

As an interpreter, most of my experience is in the automotive industry in Mexico. As a translator I have worked on a wide range of documents, from scripts and audiovisual translation to literary essays and corporative material.

My formal background in science and engineering gave me an analytical way of thinking, while my personal fascination with arts and humanities has given me a wider range of knowledge and cultural sensitivity.
