    Germany - Last active: 1 month ago - Portfolio: 3

    I work with translation from English to Portuguese and the other way around too. I have lived in the USA for a year and I also travel a lot outside Brazil. Now, I am living in Berlin, Germany. For exemple, I am currently working on a translation for this website: from Portuguese to English and I made the interpretation for a group of young artists led by Crossway Foundation, an English Foundation, in Brazil. I also have a Bachelor's degree on Photography at SENC University in São Paulo, and like very much to work with portraits, photoshop, creative projects and basic design. I have worked for some magazines and websites in Brazil, as you can see on my photography portfolio website: I also play the flute for 17 years now, and had two bands: in one of them we played electronic music in which I used to make one of the vocals, lyrics and a few drum tracks, and the other one I used also to make the vocals and played the flute: This is just a basic non-fully-mixed rehearsal recording, but at least you can hear how the band used to sound like. In both of then, I did composition too. In music and composition, I also participate of the creation and execution for this soundtrack: I can be full-time dedicated to oDesk jobs here in Berlin, as I am a freelancer. I am interested in Translations PT-EN/EN-PT, soundtracks composition and recording, photography and executive production. So, if you need anything, just write and I will answer very quickly. Thank you very much for the contact.
