Raised between Peru & the United States, I have been bilingual (English/Spanish) since I was two years old. Educated in an exclusive private school in Lima, and at the University of Nevada Las Vegas where I will be obtaining my Bachelor's degree in Business (Entrepreneurship) in May. I come from a family of politicians and entrepreneurs, and have extensive knowledge in business terms and translation, having previously worked for American companies expanding into South America. Travel is also one of my passions and I am quite proficient at it, although any type of translation (whether it's business, legal, or medical) between English and Spanish is perfectly suited for me.

I am a stay-at-home-mom, so I have time on my side. I've always been very into writing, since I was a child, but never pursued other than as a hobby. Now that I am staying at home, and have dramatically reduced my family's income, I am looking to earn some extra money, and I figure why not do something I enjoy doing?

I'm a freelance closet writer. I've never done much until lately. Someone viewed my work and got me a few paying gigs. I've been paid by about 8 to 10 people to write short stories and or song lyrics. I work full time in a popular Big Box Home Center. I would love to be able to retire early from the retail scene and just write short stories, poems and songs. I like the way words flow together to develop a picture in your mind. I like imagery in my writing.

I am an artist before anything else. I draw and hand paint custom designs onto any canvas based tennis shoes. I haven't run into anything I can't paint yet. I like to say, "if I can draw it, I can paint it". I'd be more than happy to paint custom wall art aswell.
