I trained as a sub-editor (copy-editor) in the US when I was working towards my BA in English at UCLA, having interned at the Latin American Studies Center and worked for several academic publishers since. I now have my own publishing house (more of a home-office), specialized in scholarly works. Bilingual in US and British English. Also speak and read Brazilian Portuguese fluently.
