I reside in Toronto. I am originally from Montreal and my background is Greek. I was a surveillance officer at a brokerage firm and later worked for the same company as a freelance translator, mostly translating complaints. I have a certificate in translations from the University of Toronto and I welcome the opportunity to participate in Global Voices.
