Getting to know all about you…We think our staff is the best. Everyday our caption editors, video describers, translators, and administrators go above and beyond to meet demanding deadlines. Without our amazingly talented, fun, creative, and intelligent staff, our services would not be the best in the industry! Each month, CaptionMax will introduce one member of our fantastic staff. We hope you enjoy getting to know more about what makes us tick.
1. How long have you been working for CaptionMax?
I started my tenure at CaptionMax in February of 2003 so this month will be my 9th year anniversary.
2. What do you like most about working here?
About work, I like the variety of work that I get to work on. Sometimes, I also get to work on very current affairs, which are really interesting, and enlightening. Talking about the company itself, I like the flexibility it has offered me.
3. Tell me more about your working for CM in Spain?
Well, working from Spain has definitely been a change in my life, especially because I work from my own house. It’s hard at times to separate life from work when your computer is always there and your email is always open. Other times, it’s challenging having a 2-year old craving attention when you are working, but overall is really nice having the family really close and also having a job that I enjoy doing.
4. Where is you favorite place to visit? Why?
The beach is my favorite place hands down. I grew up seeing it almost daily and having that back in my life has definitely being a plus. When the weather allows it, I really love taking Marco to the beach and playing soccer with him in there.
5. What do you do to relax?
It might not sound really relaxing, but I like to exercise to disconnect and relax. During this past year, I’ve discovered spinning classes and I try to do that at least 3 times a week early in the day. As a family, we’ve also taking some trips to southern Spain (Andalucía), the Canary Islands, and very recently, to Italy.
6. If you had a super power, what would it be?
This one is super easy: “teleportation” meaning, if I could go from Spain to the U.S. (or vice versa) in a matter of seconds, I’d definitely do that.
