With over ten years experience in arts, communications, digital media, journalism and publishing, I work as a journalist, writer and editor. I'm interested in the planning, design, development and production of content for web, print, radio and broadcast platforms. Fluent in French with basic Spanish, technically savvy, knowledgeable about copyright and passionate about culture, publishing and digital media, I collaborate with arts institutions, media organisations, public relations companies, universities, communications agencies, charities and corporations.

Con más de diez años de experiencia en los sectores de comunicación, medios digitales, gestión de proyectos y editorial, en la actualidad estoy interesado en los ámbitos de la planificación colaborativa, diseño, desarrollo (e intersecciones) de la web, prensa, radio y televisión; así como en la producción de contenidos para estas plataformas. Nivel de ingles y francés bilingüe, cursando estudios de español en la actualidad, con altos conocimientos técnicos y en materia de derechos de autor y apasionada de las redes sociales, el ámbito editorial y las artes, he sido definida por mis compañeros de profesión como una persona creativa y empática, con facilidad para solucionar conflictos con un enfoque diplomático y firme a la vez, detallista y un cualidades para trabajar eficazmente bajo presión.
