I have a BSc. in World History, a BSc. in Cultural Anthropology, Certified as a Translator from English to Spanish, and I am currently a Medical student looking to publish 2 medical research papers as a main author and as a participant in another study. I currently live in San Diego, California; but I've lived in Hawaii (main island), Los Angeles, Mexico City, London, and have traveled quite a bit. I would say I have great attention to detail and a bi-cultural way of looking at the world stemming from my Mexican Heritage. I have translated a few web pages from English to Spanish and vice versa, and translated a book from spanish to English called "Yo he estado en marte" by known Italian/Mexican Author Narciso Genovese, Translated several webpages, 50 industrial cleaning specs, translated for motivational speakers Brian Tracy, and Luis Vicente garcia, and many other milestones.

I write for shops like National Geographic and Smithsonian. Other clients include Time Warner Cable, Sallie Mae, Holt Reinhart & Winston, Cengage and the Naval Observatory.
Among other things, I've covered Antarctic escapades, flying jetpacks, amorous sea slugs, poisonous newts, time-worn pyramids, crime-fighting water, blood-squirting lizards, and how to survive a shark attack.
Some projects on the front burner: a how-to adventure guide for budding young explorers, a game show on dealing with disasters, and an espionage-themed travel show.
I try to see as much of the world as I can. You can learn a lot about people, places, science, oddities, and commodities. A few things I've found: a police state can teach you to take it easy; hi-tech cities harbor lo-fi scams; volcanoes are safe while glaciers are treacherous; the worst misfortunes make the best stories.
Let me tell yours.
