I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where my father was a dentist and my mother an accountant. My parents wanted to move to the U.S. to provide a better future for their children. When I was 12, my father received a professional visa and we moved to Boston.
I had been studying English at the Instituto Cultural Ingles in Buenos Aires for nearly seven years so by the time we arrived in the U.S. I spoke the language fluently.
Over the years, I developed a love for words and became known for having a flair for writing.
After graduating from U-Mass in Amherst, I worked full time as a writer for several organizations and corporations. A few years later, I decided to start my own business and become a freelance writer.
Over the past 25 years my freelance career has thrived because of my talent in using words to create rich images, convey complex ideas and clarify technical information.
I have written features for the Washington Post, Discovery.com and other publications on consumer interests, psychology and local color as well as launched two columns on humor. I have also written independent trade newsletters on the transportation, energy and corporate relocation industries.
My skills include the following:
- Translating technical information for consumer audiences
- Researching extensively on technical and consumer topics
- Interviewing experts on complex subjects
- Writing conference reports
- Developing ideas for marketing campaigns
- Generating ideas for newsletter stories
- Co-authoring books.
