I specialize in marketing and web/blog localization
and I’d love to help you.
Although I’m devoted to my profession, I find time for my hobbies. Some are lifelong interests, such as books and movies; my life would have been much duller without Saramago and Billy Wilder. Others, I have acquired over the years, such as graphic novels, my infatuations and fallings out with McNulty and Don Draper, and I have recently grown interested in video games and anything that involves Fumito Ueda.
Before doing what I do now, I had already led quite an interesting life. I graduated from High School in the US, not missing of course the prom. I spent some time in Dublin, living with an adorable old woman, and I also worked as an au-pair in Belgium. Meanwhile, for 13 years, I pursued my passion for classical ballet and Spanish dance, another form of communication.
As my days are spent in front of a screen, I disconnect by taking walks in the park, meeting up with friends and drinking tea like there is no tomorrow. Why not come and join me for a cup?
I love gift wrapping. Before I begin I think about the person it is for, their likes, their needs. Then I thoroughly scour the web (and the real world) until I find the perfect gift wrap. Doing the research is essential, but to make sure the gift is a real success, personalizing the wrapping is crucial. It needs to express sentiments, so I take as much time as the task requires.
I then inspect it all, checking for imperfections: the paper with nice sharp creases, the adornments well attached… Once finished, I take a picture of the gift wrap for my file to record the person’s tastes and perhaps to do it even better next time. I then deliver it on the right date, hoping to see a big smile on the receiver’s face.
Gift wrapping is just a hobby, so imagine how meticulous my method is when it comes to my work.
