Service Description

Expect your projects to be delivered on or ahead of schedule, with the highest standards of quality, thanks to my meticulous attention to detail.

Up to December 2011, I worked as Chief of the information department of a Retail consultancy firm where my main duties included the completion of two monthly magazines (edited in English and Spanish), in addition to content writing for the company's website. As head of the department I was involved in all aspects of the project, from writing to editing, translating and proofreading, all these skills I believe I would achieve to your liking both in Spanish and English.

I'm currently embarked on projects that range from business proposal development, community management and content development to proofreading and editing for a leading online PR firm.

As for my areas of expertise, I'm passionate about travel writing, having travelled extensively around the world and kept records in travel blogs. Other areas of expertise inlcude gastronomy, fashion, real estate, retail, business, and lifestyle.

As a trained journalist - with experience working in one of Argentina's most important newspapers, La Nacion - you can expect extensive cross checking to ensure that you have up-to-date, relevant and reliable information.
