After a few years working as a staff reporter in the Spanish newspaper El Periódico de Aragón, I decided it was time to take on new challenges. In 2011 I was awarded a “la Caixa” Foundation fellowship and moved to San Francisco to get into new media in depth, learn photography and video skills and improve my English writing at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.
My master’s thesis about Mexico’s female professional wrestlers, Las Luchadoras, has been featured on vice.com and elpais.com, the website of Spanish highest-circulation daily newspaper, among other outlets, and will be part of the festival MXªBCN (Festival Internacional de México en Barcelona), which will take place in Barcelona next October.
I am part of the original team that launched CNET en Español in 2013, the Spanish language sister site of technology site CNET. For the past two years I have been producing, shooting and editing a wide variety of videos about technology on a daily basis and for a Spanish speaking audience, as well as regularly writing and hosting some of them. I occasionally contribute with written features, news, tutorials, reviews and profiles.
What I like the most about working as a journalist is having the chance to learn new things and meet different people every day. My work has appeared on media such as Newsweek, TIME.com, Observer.com, and La Vanguardia, and I have reported on technology, local politics, environmental issues, entertainment and crime, among other subjects. Before joining CNET, I covered San Francisco’s Mission District for Mission Loc@l, an hyperlocal news outlet.
I speak Spanish, English, German and French. In my free time I can be found reading, watching documentaries or just enjoying a good meal, an interesting conversation or a sunny walk around the Mission.
