Hi, I'm Roberto Lebron, Bilingual Copywriter, Translator, Artist.
Roberto Gonzalez's Bio:
Hi, I'm Roberto Lebron. I help businesses grow by telling their stories as a bilingual copywriter, screenwriter, and artist. I develop content for the web, television and video in English and Spanish — because if you’re using only one language today, you’re leaving money on the table.
I have written for the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, Microsoft, Diageo and more.
I have taught at every level from K to College in Venezuela, Puerto Rico, New York and Florida, and I know how to break complex information down so it's more easily understandable.
As an artist, I have shown my work in the United States and Latin America, and my paintings are in the collection of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture, and the Arecibo Museum of Art.
I'm a graduate of New York University. I now live in Southern Florida, a stone's throw from some alligators who would love to have me for lunch.
