Service Description

If you choose to hire me to collaborate on your project you can expect your work to be delivered on or ahead of schedule, with the highest standards of quality thanks to my almost obsessive attention to detail.

For the past two years, and 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.

As for my areas of expertise, you can expect sound knowledge in travel writing, having done extensive travel around the world keeping record of them in travel blogs in addition to having worked in the tourism industry, cooking, fashion, real estate, retail, business, and lifestyle pieces.

Because I am trained journalist -with experience working in one of Argentina's most important newspaper (La Nacion)- you can expect extensive cross checking to ensure that you have up-to-date, relevant and reliable information.
