I was born in Mexico City. I consider English my mother tongue, literally. My mother was English and my first words were in this language. However, I am a Mexican so Spanish soon caught up.
My grade school education was at a bilingual school. My first translations were as a teenager helping my parents who occasionally did translations for Selecciones, the Spanish language edition of the Reader´s Digest, especially articles like "I am John's foot", in the medical field. I did the translation first and then my parents corrected it, I suspect very heavily. I studied architecture at the National University (UNAM) but never finished. During this time I taught English at a small language school and this prompted me to study ESOL (English as a Second Language) Teaching.
For some years I worked at the housing institute of the Federal District and later at the National Housing Institute (INDECO).
Eventually I started teaching English at private schools in Tijuana and then my wife and I opened our own English language school, where I taught English to Mexican youngsters and adults and also Spanish to American businessmen. At the same time I took jobs as a freelance translator. I translated manuals of educational materials and equipment for companies such as Aparatos S.A (Mexico)and Edusystems (USA).
After a time we moved the school to Xalapa, in Veracruz state and I continued teaching and translating.
Now our two children are grown-up and have left the nest, so we have closed the language school and moved to the country near Cuautla, in Morelos state, and I translate full time.
Some of my main clients have been sending me work for more than fifteen years. These include Oshkosh Corporation and Pierce Manufacturing. For these companies I have translated a great many technical manuals of fire trucks, ambulances, garbage trucks, concrete mixers, and other kinds of equipment, as well as contracts, bids, technical specifications and other kinds of documents.

I started translating on a typewriter and pasting illustrations on paper, looking up references in hard copy and sending my work by snail mail. The world of translation has changed a great deal since then, but I have always kept up. I consider the fact that we now have so many resources available a challenge to improve the quality of my work.
I am fully committed to doing my best and I always deliver my work when promised.
