Conference Interpreting

Im wrapping up my work week and the video below comes up in my Youtube feed. After watching this videos it made feel proud of the work that I do on the weekly basis which is consecutive interpreting. In addition it motivated me to look into conference interpreting as my next step in my career. I taught me about the different types of interpreting and I realized that adrenaline forms part of my work. If you are interested interpreting please watch this video it’s a great production.


José Guadalupe Posada

Art and culture from Google is awesome and yesterday I found that it was Jose Guadalupe Posada birthday. I wanted to share some his art because he is latino specifically from Mexico. Cultural-broker where we interpret it art, language and society. Im very happy to find latino artist because it continues to give me references.


José Guadalupe Posada Aguilar was a Mexican political lithographer who used relief printing to produce popular illustrations. His work has influenced numerous Latin American artists and cartoonists because of its satirical acuteness and social engagement. He used skulls, calaveras, and bones to convey political and cultural critiques.

Among his most enduring works is La Calavera Catrina.

Two types of live interpreting.


And Yes, I can provide two ways of interpreting.

1. Consecutively

This where there’s a dialogue for most the time.

Person speaking in English or Spanish speaker talks in short phrases and gives time for the interpretation. It’s like tennis match back forth and done well it has a good flow.

2. Simultaneously

This where I’m interpreting into at the same time as the speaker. This option you need equipment/ that gets my audio to the right audience.  This is like rollercoaster ones it starts there is no going back until the end. The interpreter should have knowledge about scene to perform accurately.


1. Consecutively $200hr

2. Simultaneously $1,200hr

I hope I was able to explain clearly. Please if you need more info please feel free to contact me. I have my own professional website.

Definition of Cultural Broker’s logo

My logo is about the identity.

A fingerprint with the outline of planet earth.

Planet earth is filled with diversity and that’s what makes it great.  

This logo represents us in person and online.

It’s about recognizing that us identify is unique there is no one in the world d that has the same finger print as you do.

A then again, we share so much but you are still unique.

It’s the appreciation of exceptionality of the world we live on.

Let’s celebrate what makes us different and what brings us together!

For example: BBQ,  Churrasco, Carne Asada, Cerveja, Cerveza,  Beer,  Beach Playa Praia

Marijuana Weed Macohana Art Movies Music

Cultural broker is bridge between different languages, and culture.

It’s about self-identity

It’s about self-improvement

It’s about self- discovery

The logo is about educating ourselves informally and formally

It’s about experiencing other culture

It’s about our individual stories,

It’s the story of my family my mother and father and my siblings my sister bothers and now my wife and her family.

It’s about love.

The best type of work I like completing is one that I’m going to be proud of at the end.

I haven’t written in a while I am having been drawing and painting lately and I’m so happy to announce the growth of the cultural broker.com is having in Brazil

I just fell in love with art and color.

I have always felt like a creative person and never really looked inside for guidance.

Now I know that I am artist. Even in university I wanted to be an entrepreneur create something innovative something that can make change and changes.

And I didn’t know how to feed it when younger now I’m able to acknowledge myself and feed my creativity.

I’m an entrepreneur.

In a way we are all entrepreneurs and artist we all have a unique story, unique vocabulary a unique experience and cultural-broker.com is where you connect with different cultures.

Welcome and thank you for everyone that like the new logo.

My message to Canelo

Canelo and team,

I’m professional interpreter and I saw the fight and I saw the commentary after wards.

I’m sorry to say but that the interpreter omitted and change the message multiple times. In addition, he was not taking notes.

Canelo deserves the best and that’s cultural-broker.com from El Paso TX.

We serve the Latino community I have interpreter for United States Citizenship Services (USCIS) for immigrants and immigration officers. In my time with USCIS I was trained to interpret word for word.

I also have experience working with lawyers, doctors and nurses.  

When the stakes are high the interpreter needs to be 100% accurate.

Best and Congratulations! Viva Mexico!

Canelo y equipo,

Soy intérprete profesional y vi la pelea y vi los comentarios después.

Lamento decirlo, pero el intérprete omitió y cambió el mensaje varias veces. Además, no estaba tomando notas.

Canelo se merece lo mejor y eso es cultural-broker.com del El Paso TX.

Servimos a la comunidad latina. Tengo experencia como intérprete para los Servicios de Ciudadanía de los Estados Unidos (USCIS) para inmigrantes y oficiales de inmigración. En mi tiempo con USCIS fui entrenado para interpretar palabra por palabra.

También tengo experiencia trabajando con abogados, médicos y enfermeras.

Cuando hay mucho en juego, el intérprete debe ser 100% preciso.

Saludos y muchas felicidades! Viva Mexico!

Pinheiros Municipal Market

Octopus Art at Pexaria Fatima

Other than language, food has to be the largest part of any culture.

If you are staying in São Paulo in the Pinheiros, Vila Madalena area for longer period of time, you are going to want to know places for food at market rate.

And if you are going to cook for yourself and not eat out all the time. I recommend two places for food groceries.

1. La Feira en na Rua (street farmers market) different days for different area. I go on Saturday on Rua Mourato Coelho around closing time 1:00pm its called Chepa that’s when the vendor markdown their prices. You can get 3 for 5 at the begin normal hours but at the end you could get 5 for 5 vegetables packages. Side note they have the best a Pastel treat and a Caldo de Cana ask for the lemon flavor one. You later use to mix it with cachaca original cocktail I do for family and friends.

Large Vegetables Street Farmers Market São Paulo

Second option personal recommedation for foodie just a regular person or is the the municipal pinherioas market. .. there are many place to eat under one roof. Here are some of my favorite:

1. Reina do Mercado restraurant great place for classic Brazilian dishes they have fresh oysters at Mercado municipal Pinherio

Contra file (RIBEYE) and Salad
Oysters and Beer

2. Entrepostos Das Feijoada its one my favorite place to buy all types of Brazilian nuts, pecans, chocolates, dry fruit and meats etc etc etc

Nuts, Dried fruits and meats, etc etc

3. It the center of all the greats shops the center of fresh vegetables and fruits.

Center Fresh Fruit and Vegetables

4. Poultry: Meats: Boi Cow, Fish, Pork, Chicken .

One of my favorite place to have lunch and shop for my groceries after all in one place.

It’s a culinary center.

It’s a complete food court and good places to sets a price point for your weekly grocery run around the city.
