I have been writing ever since I can remember and a journalist for over 25 years. To delve now into the world of social media is the logical consequence of understanding where we are and where we are going.
As a journalist I have done pretty much everything, both for print media and online. I started at the Spanish newspaper La Opinión de Murcia, where, among other things, I was a Section Manager. However, I’ve spent most of my career at 20 Minutos, one of the most widely read newspapers in Spain. While living in Madrid, I served as their Chief Editor. Now based in Canada, I am one of the web editors of the newspaper’s home page and continue to be a regular contributor, after having been responsible for a section dedicated to in-depth analysis of current issues.
Since 2016 I am also a member of the editorial board of Lattin Magazine, an online news and in-depth reportage magazine based in Toronto, focused on the Hispanic-Canadian community, and where I write regularly.
Between 2011 and 2012 I worked at the Toronto newspaper El Popular, where I was a lead player in the redesign and overhaul of its website, which resulted in a more than 400% increase in the number of visitors. In addition, I was responsible for the online edition, including management of social media, writing, editing, and updates. For the print edition, I acted as head of national and local news (Canada and Toronto).
I also work as an English-Spanish translator, and as a Spanish language teacher, editor and proofreader. As a social media manager, I have worked with the communication and media team at the FCJ Refugee Centre, a Toronto non-profit organization that helps refugees in Canada.
And in my spare time I am an active blogger, with a focus on the politics and culture of the Middle East — an area of the world where I lived for a while and that still fascinates me. I also write some fiction.
In my work as a journalist I specialize in international news, the Middle East, and the Hispanic community. I am particularly interested in issues related to human rights and, in general, the stories of ordinary people. Everyone has a story worth sharing, and, if I’m having a good day, I like to think that in every story there is something inspiring, with the ability to make this world a better place.
I was born in Murcia, Spain, and currently reside in Toronto, Canada.
