    I'm a professional freelancer providing translation services English to Spanish and English to Catalan. I'm an experienced translator with over 60 happy clients on Elance. Spanish is my mother tongue, and I am highly proficient in English. I studied English as a second language at Fairleigh Dickinson University (NJ) to master it, obtaining a Certificate of Proficiency in English (ECPE). I lived in NYC for 2 additional years while attending a Professional Culinary Arts Program and an MBA in Restaurant Management at The Institute of Culinary Education, NYC. Other things about me: I have a Major Degree in Law and another in Computer Engineering, a Culinary Arts Diploma and an MBA in Restaurant Management. I have self-studied Internet Marketing, SEO, Social Media, and attended to several conferences and seminars about these subjects. I have also wide knowledge about Maths and Physics. They are two subjects I have deeply studied (and keep studying).

    Inspirational Nonfiction Writer

    United States - Last active: 9 days ago - Portfolio: 10

    I specialize in writing on the topic of the law of attraction. It has been my passion for the last 12 years, and I can write on almost any topic related to it. I am so passionate about it that I even manifested spending hours with one of the main gurus from the movie "The Secret," Dr. Joe Vitale. I am also a huge fan of Esther Hicks and I have spoken with her one on one too. Also, I have technical expertise as I was in the corporate world as a computer programmer for 16 years. In addition, I was a Life Coach for 10 years, so I have a lot of life experience to draw on whenever I help clients to get their projects done. As a computer programmer, I prided myself on producing software code that met the users needs and that had no bugs. Now, I pride myself on producing high quality work as a writer, and doing my best to ensure that my clients are happy.
