My family, on my mother's side, has been emigrating for more than three decades. From Galicia to America: first to Chile, Cuba and then to the United States, than back to Galicia. With the civil war in Spain, the whole process started all over again.

The perception of this experience as having been an enriching one, led to our learning English at home at a very early age while we listened to stories about the Gallego community in New York, and especially in Brooklyn.

In my case, this particular family heritage combined itself with my interest for languages and literature, and after finishing my studies in Hispanic Philology, I went to study in the United States for the first time (masters degree from the University of Pennsylvania). I then returned to Spain for my doctoral studies; this was the beginning of my peculiar back and forth traveling between Spain and the United States, something which I am still doing to this day.

Professionally, I have always moved in the sphere of university education, and particularly of North American students interested in the Spanish language and culture.

I have worked for over twenty years at the Ortega y Gasset Foundation, creating programs for universities such as Chicago University, Notre Dame, Arcadia, University of Portland or Princeton, and developing those programs which already existed at the University of Minnesota and Ohio State. I have taught at Madrid's San Pablo CEU University, and on the other side of the Atlantic, at Puerto Rico's Interamericana as well as the Universities of Minnesota and Portland.
