I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela.
I left in 1989. I used to go at least once a year. Unfortunately, with the current socioeconomic and political situation, it’s very hard to visit. I miss it dearly and hope to return one day.
If I had to describe myself to a client, I’d say professional, flexible and kind. Aside from being a skillful interpreter, and being very clear about my ethics, I strive to keep my clients happy. I can quickly adapt to their needs. Many of my clients hire me because they know I’m able to work with difficult people and in very difficult situations. I can remain centered under stressful circumstances.
Recently, this made a deep impression on me. David Attenborough’s: A Life on Our Planet.” Here is a man in his 90’s, who has devoted his life to this planet, to sharing its beauty, its power, and its fragility with all of humankind, taking us all the way back to the beginning of his love affair with the planet. As we take this journey with him, we get to see the world as it was back then, so many unexplored places, so much natural abundance. As we move more and more into the present, through his eyes, we see the earth degrading at an ever-faster pace. All as a result of our actions. Looking ahead, he shows us our possible future, or non-future, really, if we don’t act now. This film is a gift to all humanity from a man who truly loves this planet. It is a deeply moving film that reminds me to be conscious of the choices I make every day.
