I have been writing ever since I can remember, and working as a professional editor and journalist for more than 20 years. I also have extensive experience as an English to Spanish translator.
I began my career as a journalist in the Spanish newspaper La Opinión de Murcia, where I was a section manager and a columnist, although I’ve spent most of my professional life at 20 Minutos, one of the most widely read newspapers in Spain. There, I served as Chief Editor until moving to Canada in 2007, and since then, I have been one of the web editors of the newspaper’s home page.
I am a member of the editorial board of Lattin Magazine, an online news and in-depth reportage magazine based in Toronto and focused on the Hispanic-Canadian community. I also work as a web editor and communication assistant at the FCJ Refugee Centre, a Toronto non-profit organization that helps refugees in Canada.
I combine my work as an editor and journalist with professional translation. Recently, I have been in charge of translating into Spanish the English content of Guide to Iceland, a travel website.
As for web designing and web content editing, I have been responsible for a number of online projects, including the websites of the Toronto Latin American Film Festival (Lataff), the Hispanic Canadian Heritage Council, Diario El Popular, or the previously mentioned FCJ Refugee Center.
I was born in Murcia, Spain, and currently reside in Toronto, Canada.
