To whom it may concern:
I'm an Italian citizen, fluently trilingual in Italian, English, and Spanish. I am a graduate of the American School in Asuncion, Paraguay, and hold a Bachelor's Degree in English from the National University of Asuncion, Paraguay, a Certificate of Sixth Level in Speech and Drama from Cambridge University (Overseas Program), a Diploma as public Translator in English-Spanish-Italian from the Paraguayan Supreme Court of Justice, and a Diploma in Piano and Music Theory . I have taught business English, English to students of all ages and diverse levels, including preparation for SAT and Cambridge e examinations. I have also taught Music and Drama to all Elementary levels, Piano to beginner-advanced students, Kindergarten 4 and 5, as well as afterschool tutoring in Literature, History, Geography, Physics, Biology, Science, and Chemistry I.
I have worked for 8 years as a public translator for English-Italian and English-Spanish documents at the Italian, British, and American Consulates and Embassies in Paraguay, and as a simultaneous interpreter in various international congresses, seminars, festivals and courses, including the Annual Congress of Spouses and Representatives of Heads of State of the Americas, held in late September 2005 in Asuncion-Paraguay.
I have also created and directed the first University Opera Company in Paraguay, taking charge of singers' preparation and lessons, stage direction, piano accompaniment, and all artistic and management decision-making regarding props, costumes, and even publicity for the shows, which include Puccini's Tosca, Il Tabarro, and Madame Butterfly, Bizet's Carmen, Moreno Torroba's Luisa Fernanda, and Verdi's La Traviata. I have university music composition studies and skills, and have composed and directed musicals for schools and theaters in Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina.
Parallel to my work as a director, arranger, teacher, translator and interpreter, I am pursuing my career as a songwriter, which is a lifelong project beginning to bear fruit at the international level.
I have recently moved to Rome, and hope to continue broadening my experience in an exciting and challenging environment, in order to help provide my three-year-old son with all the necessary conditions for a beautiful and happy childhood, and to continue my growth as a human soul in this small wide world.
