Summary of Experience
Curt is an experienced Spanish translator and tutor. He studied Spanish in college and gained years of practical experience as a U.S. Navy officer. His ports of call to Spain and France and post-Navy travel to Latin America sharpened his skills. He has also tutored elementary Spanish college students and done online translating work for several clients.

Curt's main strengths are Spanish-to-English (and vice versa), where he can skillfully convert those languages into their colloquial counterparts while retaining the original meaning and intent of the speaker.
Curt, when he's not engaged in his main hobby of freelance writing, is an avid hiker and former world traveler. He has strolled Las Ramblas in Barcelona, visited the Aztec ruins in Mexico and vacationed at the tomb of Cristobal Colon in Santo Domingo.

Curt also devoted to his wife of many years and his MacPro computer (in that order) and is an expert in computer hardware and software.

Never without a book to read, Curt loves historical fiction, but his favorite scary writer is Stephen King. His favorite Latin American author is Gabriel García Márquez.
Chapman University Aug 1998 – Dec 2001
