About Me

En español »

I have been work­ing as a pro­fes­sion­al edi­tor and jour­nal­ist for more than 25 years, and 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, where I worked as a web edi­tor of the newspaper’s home page.

Cur­rent­ly, 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 coor­di­na­tor 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, late­ly in charge of trans­lat­ing into Span­ish the Eng­lish con­tents of the web­site Lava Car Rental.

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.

In my spare time, I keep a blog focused on the pol­i­tics and cul­ture of the Mid­dle East, and anoth­er one, more per­son­al, where, among oth­er things, I write short stories.

I was born in Mur­cia, Spain, and cur­rent­ly reside in Toron­to, Canada.
