Who Am I?
Tough question. I guess that if you combine my varied education and professional experience, the result is something we could call a “communications expert.” We could even call me an “online communications expert.”
I’ve worked in journalism since the early 2000s. I can proudly say that I was trained in online news production by an amazing team of internationally-recognized online journalists in Spain. I’ve written and owned blogs, produced and hosted online video sections and edited others’ stories for online publication.
Offline, I have worked for TV and radio stations, as well as magazines and newspapers. I’ve also been a producer and a fixer.
Since 2011, apart from writing stories for different publications, I research and teach at a Canadian university. I recently finished my doctoral dissertation, which explores how journalists understand and deal with audience participation. I am also involved in projects related to online video games and I teach courses and workshops on Communication Studies and writing techniques.
I was born in Spain but I have studied and worked in Finland, Mexico and Canada. For some reason, I love living always “somewhere else” – whatever that might mean. Since starting my PhD, I’ve come to enjoy running (guess why), watching absurd TV series and, from December to April, dreaming about sunny beaches.
