About me

About me
I like to say about myself that I’m a storyteller. That translates into saying that I’m a writer, a journalist and a lecturer in Media and Communication. I love to find, make and tell stories and help people discover ones made by others and, of course, their own. I’m a book-movie-museum-travel junkie. I cherish good food more than anything and drinks with good company. Lately, I have been also busy adapting to a new role: the mom of a Rotterdammertje.

Why Rotterdam
My love affair with Rotterdam has been slow and a bit unexpected. But after years of looking each other in the eyes, now I can say that it's one of the places that I see as the best in the world to live. Exuberant and unexpected, bold and delicate at the same time, I love the energy of the people and the will of those that inhabit it to make it unique. I enjoy knowing that I live in a city that is open to the best the world has to offer, and in turn makes a big effort to give a great impression.

Where else can you find me online?
My blog in Spanish (now somewhat dormant). I also publish sometimes in Medium.
