I am an experienced journalist covering a wide range of topics (mostly culture/lifestyle) on both physical and digital platforms for many different media outlets. I have been professionally trained in journalism and continually gain more knowledge and a greater understanding of this fascinating industry. As well as journalism I have written freelance for a number of PR agencies (in particular writing press releases). Skills include: • In-depth writing for all media platforms • Creating engrossing and interesting copy on any subject • Media marketing techniques (online and offline) • SEO and social media implementation
I have a degree in Business and Economics and work part time doing cost projections, accounting, process streamlining and assisting the administration of a large janitorial company in San Salvador, El Salvador. I excel at writing down processes and business plans, and I'm helping the aforementioned company implement procedures under the ISO 9001 norm. I'm well adept at using MS Excel, Access, and Visio as tools for my work. I'm also trilingual: I know English, Spanish, and French, with knowledge of basic Mandarin as well (it's a work in progress). Languages are a passion, so I often tutor friends/acquaintances wanting to learn Spanish/English in my free time and enjoy translating in general. Studying for my degree and taking courses in photography, culinary arts, gardening, and music in English, Spanish, and French has expanded my vocabulary in these three languages, enabling me to be a fast and accurate translator, with impeccable writing style (I use Strunk & White for English). As a curious fact about me, I enjoy classical music (opera) and have been training almost 4 years to sing it. So I'm also up for the odd singing or voice-over job.
