Ari Nuncio

I grew up in Mexico, the United States, and Germany. I've been doing translations since I was a teenager, but didn't make it my full-time profession until 2000. I became an ATA-certified Spanish>English translator in 2009.

Before I started translating full-time, I was editor-in-chief at an online travel portal in Puerto Vallarta and worked as a journalist for Business Mexico, a monthly magazine that serves Canada, Mexico, and the United States.

I inherited my love of letters from my mother, an American who taught French and Spanish, and my father, a prominent Mexican writer.

I also love technology. Currently I'm pursuing a degree in Management Information Systems at the University of Oklahoma. I've spent the last two years working as Data Manager for Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma, a poverty law firm with more than twenty offices statewide.

The Nuncio family has been in northern Mexico for centuries. In fact, the family has its own museum in Coahuila, the Casa de la Familia Nuncio, which exhibits the mummified remains of my ancestors. These naturally mummified corpses were discovered in 2007 on the Day of the Dead. The males were buried in French tuxedoes, while the women wore fancy dresses. The family owned large haciendas that spanned two states. Pedro Nuncio supplied horses and guns for the War of the Reform.
