About Me

En español

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.

In my spare time, I write a blog focused on the politics and culture of the Middle East. I also write some fiction.

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