Work experience

Jan 2016Present

Multimedia Reporter

BBC Mundo

I write about economy, education, technology, science, and "Educate me" stories. I manage to use all the tools available at BBC such as infographics, visualizations, quizzes, and more, to make stories more attractive and engage new audiences. I also create visualizations on my own. I'm the referent of the implementation of BBC tools in the Miami bureau, teaching and encouraging my colleagues to use them.  I create content for BBC Mundo during the Hay Festivals seasons  in Latin America and usually travel to the events to cover the social media role (Perú 2016, México 2017 and the next own will be Colombia 2019) .
