About

MY BACKGROUND

With a passion for writing, sciences, and languages, I have both the skill set and professional background necessary for successful communication projects. Your research documents need to convey your ideas and discoveries, and my job is to make sure all the elements are in place and adequate for Brazilian readers and viewers, and that the Brazilian people will be able to know about your research in your own words -- nothing more, nothing less. I am here to ensure your voice is correctly heard -- no typos, no ambiguity, no missing elements.

I help you spread your discoveries and advance Science and Research.
