Professor / Literary, Film & Cultural Critic / Editor / Writer



I have over ten years of experience teaching a wide variety of Spanish and English courses in Spain, England and the U.S. that range from translation and interpretation and Spanish for health professionals in several language schools, to Film Studies at the University of Cádiz and Spanish culture and language classes from beginning through advanced levels at Amherst College.


For four years at the University of Kentucky, I taught Spanish elementary to intermediate courses as well as courses such as Spanish for Business Professionals, Spanish and Latin American Business Environments and Spanish Composition through Textual Analysis.


I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Western Oregon University where I teach Spanish Composition and Conversation, Spanish Language and Literature for Bilingual/Heritage Speakers, Introduction to Hispanic Literature, Introduction to Translation and Interpreting and Spanish Language Practicum among other courses of language, literature and Spanish for the professions. As service to the institution I am directing a community outreach project.
