About me

I'm a writer at heart and translator by trade — more often than not I mix these two up. I've been working as a translator since 2007 and have concluded a mammoth number of projects in various fields. Writing just came naturally to me, both in Portuguese and English, so I decided to pursue it, and have already contributed to a number of magazines and lifestyle websites, as well as the webzine I co-created and now lead, Almanaque.
