Bio

I am a Conference Interpreter with over 7 years of experience in the field. I obtained my MA in Conference Interpreting in 2015 at Universidad de La Laguna (Tenerife, Spain), part of the EMCI (European Masters in Conference Interpreting) Consortium and closely linked to the European Commission and Parliament. I previously studied Translation at Universidad del Salvador in Buenos Aires, Argentina (2009). Even though I have provided Interpreting services in a variety of settings throughout my career (and this variety is precisely one the aspects I enjoy the most about Interpreting), my area of expertise is sport, a passion of mine both in and out of the booth.
